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."

"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."

AusSI Systems (Semi Finalist)
