Movers&Shakers Summit was a super valuable experience. I meet other event organizers from around Europe and had many meaningful conversations. Thanks to Mover&Shakers I connected better with my fellow ecosystem builders and established relationships that will help us boost our global startup ecosystem.

For me it was one of the best events I ever attended as it allowed me to really connect and interact with people with a similar background. With its focus on quality over quantity it allowed for conversations that went far beyond the normal conference Small Talk. The workshop sessions touched topics deeply relevant to the participants which led to great discussions during and after the event.

I really appreciate the community and space that you have created. I met some incredible people at the Movers&Shakers Summit. With most of them I have already exchanged ideas on upcoming projects and how we can help each other.

The location and atmosphere were simply stunning. I cannot think of another event with such open exchange and strictly no-bullshit, no-vanity attitude of everyone involved. Bravo! I loved it and got a lot out of it for our future endeavors in developing our local startup ecosystem.
