  • testimonials



    Overall, the ATF Kids’ Summit 2018 in Hyderabad was satisfying, primarily because of the curated attendees that we got to connect with. I would definitely sign up for ATF Kids’ Summit next year and have already recommended to partners in the industry to participate as well. In addition to the amazing speakers who shared a good perspective of their domains, I got to talk to good companies during Face Time @ Hyderabad; though we missed a few, and would have loved to have had them in my slot, the after party plugged the gap!
