As you might imagine, investors and future partners are generally reluctant to have their names appear publicly in some start-up company's "trip report".  :)

Let's just say it produced some promising contacts who expressed interest in further discussions.  That's about all you can hope for when you're given a 7-minute window to pitch your company in a meeting where 18 startups are paraded across the stage.

The biggest immediate benefit was in seeing 17 other versions of what such a "pitch" should look like.

I did get to spend 90 minutes with the conference organizer the evening before and got a lot of wisdom about what investors and partners are looking for in a pitch.

Ultimately, events like this are like drilling oil wells in uncharted territory.  You never know how many you need to drill before you get your first gusher.

Anything said on these forums does not constitute an intent to create a legal obligation or contract of any kind.   These are merely my opinions which I reserve the right to change at any time.

Anyway, even though I couldn't attend, I know for a fact that this event was a success since @Stan made some AWESOME contacts into the European FinTech community plus another very important guy who''s name I cannot publish :)

That's nice. Could Stan share the feedback he received? Was it more of the "seems pretty interesting" talk that we know people won't care or did someone show genuine interest?

+5% a "trip report" would be nice
