    You’ve done such a great job organising Tech23 over the years, and supporting innovation in Australia. Now I’ve been on both sides of the forum – as an industry leader and now a startup CEO (I actually enjoy the latter!). Thanks again for having us participate yesterday and being so generous of your time to create and organise the event. All of Australia’s startup community should thank you for it!!Industry Leader 2011 & Tech23 2014 finalist

    Heartfelt thanks for the opportunity to be part of Tech23. High on creativity, low on arrogance, that culture must come from each of you. An opportunity to learn so much, share ideas, and talk to all sorts of different people, I’m so grateful for the opportunity. I can see why companies in the 23 want to give back to build the community in subsequent years. I’m hooked. Huge thanks!Tech23 2014 finalist

    Thanks for organising another great event. A good mix of companies, the crowd is always excellent – lots of 5min catchups that would take months to organise otherwise.Industry Leader 2015
