With over 1,300 attendees, almost 400 of whom were students, the event featured tailored workshops, keynote speakers, and panel discussions with distinguished technology entrepreneurs and investors in fields ranging from artificial intelligence to fusion reactors. The atmosphere was exhilarating, and the students had the opportunity to network and engage with these experts, gaining invaluable insights into the world of startups. Overall, the workshop provided a unique opportunity for the students to learn from the best and take a step closer to their shared dream of becoming successful entrepreneurs.
