You will learn a lot from the impressive line-up of keynote speakers who have “been there, done that”, from the “Startup School” sessions which go into the nitty gritty detail of starting a company, and finally the sheer networking opportunity with local bloggers, investors, entrepreneurs, and others throughout the day and at the evening reception.
