Delegates Feedback

I was very impressed by the GVC event. To put this is perspective, I had just come from presenting at the DowJones VentureWire conference in San Francisco. I had anticipated that the DowJones event would be more valuable to --------, as I had little previous information about GVC. I was wrong. Overall, the GVC had much better panels and attracted a much larger number of leading venture capital firms and industry players. ----------

The conference represented two of the most productive days of my professional career..........

An exciting forum with effective information transferal. Not to be missed.....
