  • Emenda! - Matthieu TISSERAND, MEP Project Manager

Thank you for organizing this Asian Start Up Summit which, I think, was unanimous among the participants. It would be difficult for me to find negative points to this event, we might have wanted a wider B to B meeting slot, when you love you always want more. I made great connections, I hope now to convert them!

  • BNP – Dorothy  WU, Head of Corporates Segment / Global Banking  Brand and Communications, APAC

Congrats on a very successful event yesterday!

Congratulations to the FCCS team for this summit. Lena, Nick and Ingrid can confirm that we had fruitful meetings and talks.
