Had an awesome time connecting with new & reconnecting with old business friends on @converstart's online networking event last Saturday! Super refreshing in these times, and a great way to talk to 6 people in 1 hour. Highly recommend!

As heard after #TheRipple: "I loved it. 11 weeks in quarantine; this was the very 1st time I met new people. I made meaningful connections + felt really energized. I hope we manage to do it again!" Shout-out to all partners, sponsors & participants for creating virtual magic!
