With regard to the Congress, it was a wonderful experience for us! Not only were all of the sessions really interesting and inspiring, but everything was in place for us to meet and approach everyone, to make great contacts, to share ideas, and to feel like we were part of a greater community of people who really want to make a positive impact on the world. It was really exciting to talk to serial entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, and start-ups like ours who face a specific set of challenges doing tech for impact in an under-resourced part of the world. We made amazing contacts and felt so inspired and motivated by all of the people we met, as well as taking back some new ideas and new skills from the sessions we attended.

"World Summit Awards is a truly global awarding system which gives opportunities for the best local products to be showcased at an international stage. During this summit, the best problem solvers from around the world gather under one roof and take part in interactive knowledge sharing sessions, smart discussion forums and various networking events. Eminent speakers take the stage and disseminate knowledge across various fields of expertise, providing thought provoking inspiration to all attendees. I truly admire the perfect planning and execution of each aspect of the summit where WSA panel treated everyone like family. By just participating in the WSA, one learns and grows more within few days than would have in months."
