What Makes WOCCON Different

"Great job at addressing a challenging subject matter and encouraging participants to be open in addressing the real issues."

"This was not just a talk, but a more hands-on and mingling event which was much more productive."

"There was a good mix of people in the room. Not only were there so many connections to be made, but the quality, energy, and determination of everyone in the room propelled me to make the connections."

"An environment that encouraged open conversation about difficult issues and connecting deeply with each other!"

"It was great for connecting with angel investors, many of whom I had met before, but needed to reconnect with."

"The substance of this program was really good and I was impressed with how it was organized...it was the best presentation that I have attended in a while."
