    Met some new people. Enjoyed the presentations. As a creative person, I enjoyed seeing start-ups with enthusiastic creators who are following their passion.

    I believe an opportunity to make a difference was missed. It is very difficult to smartly start, grow revenue / find talent. The tech community talent pool which exists can help greatly should it be tasked properly. This was my first meeting and though an excellent forum, it missed an opportunity for the tech community to help budding tech companies in a truly meaningful way. Well intentioned, but less than what could have been was accomplished here.

    Good to see the presentation of ideas. I feel that there should be a few more minutes added to the time limits so the audience can get a clearer picture regarding the company's direction and future plans.

    Other than the unfortunately necessary limited of time for Q&A, I thought the forum was an excellent collection of passionate entrepreneurs hoping to be re ready for the blender of the marketplace that awaits them. 5 minutes does prepare them for the also unfortunate reality that most of the people they'll pitch to have equally short attention spans. I plan to attend again and hope to be of assistance.

    IMHO 5 minutes is not enough, I'd like to hear more from the presenters. Perhaps they could always present information such as proposal value, hypothesis, what they learned so far, etc. Also I think last presenter (Media Academic) didn't fit the purpose of the meeting.
