After Startup Grind: Final Thoughts

After exhibiting, multiple meetings, pitching on the main stage, and countless hours of preparation paired with the overall excitement of attending Startup Grind, we're exhausted! Although the conference is over, we made lifelong connections and friends that we will treasure. The entire experience was incredible. We are grateful to have heard from top industry leaders, keynote speakers, founders, entrepreneurs, investors and media and happy that we got to see firsthand what's happening in the world of tech.

While at the Startup Grind Global Conference 2017, we worked hard, tried to absorb information and feedback faster than the speed of light and had some great laughs along the way. We also learned a few industry secrets that we can't wait to apply and share with all of you!

So now that we've had a moment to digest some of our experience, we thought we'd share our Top 10 Conference Highlights.

1. @Assist making the Top 50 out of 6000+ worldwide applications

2. Our Quickfire Pitch that was live-streamed globally so even friends and family could cheer us on

3. Meeting other awesome startups from around the world

4. Our sweet exhibition table

5. Listening and learning from speakers/entrepreneurs

6. Investor Meetings

7. The food (OH THE FOOD!)

8. Half Moon Bay

9. That our name was spelt properly throughout the conference

10. Awesome and friendly startup atmosphere

We've written about our experience in this series of posts to help the next batch of entrepreneurs that are given this honor. If you're thinking of applying, you should! Do it here. And if you'd like to ask us specific questions, feel free to comment on our blog or get in touch.

This is the second year Startup Grind has had this global conference and there are still a few kinks to work out. But even with the kinks, if we were invited back to do it all over again, we absolutely would.

We hope you've enjoyed reading about our journey. Feel free to share it with others on social media and check out our website to see what we do besides writing awesome blog posts.
