What People are Saying

Darren PerlmanFinalist

Participating in Hi5 last fall was a great experience to get our message out there and to prepare us for future pitches to secure new customers and investors.

Fiona MitchellAttendee

I was impressed...the event was tightly run, full of interesting ideas, and the presentations were solid. And I loved the virtual conference experience...that was clever and effective! A very good intro to Haltech for me...amazing work by you and your team.

David WrightJudge

The event is very well organized, so easy to participate in, and have fun, all the while thinking and "working". Thanks for a creating such a great environment!

Nishit PatelFinalist

Increased visibility after placing as a finalist in the Hi5 pitch competition furthered a number of discussions with potential investors, and overseas recognition led to signing MoUs with international partners.
