What past participants said about previous ATC Programs
Emudent (Semi Finalist)
"First and foremost the entire event was very well organised to the level of fine details. It was designed to make the participants feel very comfortable and focus on the event, rather than run around to get coffee or a meal. The premises, communication, logistics, catering were superb. The panels were world-class, thorough, relevant and though provoking. The networking opportunities were priceless. Well done."
Universal Field Robots
"This is one of the few events aimed at scaleups, not just early startups, so it's great to have been able to learn more relevant information and not just rehash prior learnings."
Sound Scouts (Semi Finalist)
"The panels were great and the opportunity to ask lots of questions was invaluable."
Quick Safety (Semi Finalist)
"Workshops presenters were approachable, welcoming and supportive.”
AdAlta (2018 Winner)
"I liked the format of the sessions, getting the panel to introduce themselves and allowing a lot of questions from the audience. The breadth of the speakers was really good, representing a good cross-section of industries."
AusSI Systems (Semi Finalist)
"The opportunity to network and connect with other serious businesses has been very valuable."
(Previous ATC Winner)
"There was a great selection of quality speakers with excellent topic choices for each of the sessions. The material presented was very relevant for all businesses at the workshop. Also, a good location and great catering."
"Masterclass was great, was beneficial to get all that information and also network with other companies in similar situations, and some companies which are now looking to come onboard as clients of ours."
"Great speakers; well organised. Dedication of ATC team members and the ability to bring together so many people and engage over two days was impressive."
