What a line up! The speakers left no stone unturned with insightful information for the entrepreneur, focussing on the ‘How to’, getting your startup off the ground and becoming successful.
Every presenter highlighted their passion for making a change and reinforced the need for having a purpose in making your vision a reality, as your purpose will keep you and your team dedicated.

Each speaker was equally as impressive as the next, highlighting their journeys and passion to make a change.
Flavia Nardini took it to the next level with her company FLEET focussing on space. They are creating a network of micro satellites to connect everything.
