    Good selection of companies in the space and good panel. Strong turnout for the last week of August.

    Does anyone know how I can get in touch with Nomi to get a couple of slides from the deck they presented? Would like to share with clients. Their website doesn't have similarly convincing visuals.

    Found it very informative, particularly the segment by NOMI... a bit scary.... The remote segment might better have been dropped once it was evident that the transmission etc. would not work well... turned out a bit
    "distant" and difficult to connect with... I am a recent member and believe the events are good and have lots of potential.

      Thanks, Henry. It was the first time we had problems with Skype demos and you are right - we should have axed it. Lesson learned- we'll make sure it doesn't happen again :)

    This was a great event. Thank you for organizing Liz! Thought Nomi's traction and team were really impressive. It was also interesting to see how Snapette incorporated the B2B element into an originally B2C model. And congratulations to Snapette (RE: Price Grabber)!
