Our 4th year supporting Techinnovation, and our 1st going solely as a service provider, gave a slightly different perspective on this hugely successful and well attended event. Between Techinnovation and the concurrent SLUSH and Techventure events the NRF estimated a total 5000 people went through the doors over the two days. Having the events running at the same time, gave a good spread of entrepreneurs from all parts of business, from competitors to Foresight, early stage technology developers and researchers, through to investors and government bodies.
Due to be being very busy at our booth, I did not have too much chance to have a look round the event though it was clear IPI’s reach to different technology providers continues to grow, with a number of universities and research institutes coming from even further afield, to show their technologies. It was great to have a chance to see some of this and have some of the initial discussions that will hopefully lead to further business in the region for Foresight.
