Thank You for a Superb Money & Mobile Event!

This was truly a great event - with so many insights and great speakers for a full-house of guests! Thank you all for coming and please find the summary the slides, and the photos of the event in this post.

This time we deviated from our usual technical topics and went to the business side peaking behind the curtains into the backstage of the mobile business.

If not mistaken, our start startups AdCash and Transferwise were the first time in Tartu and all of the speakers gave extremely interesting presentations. Who would have thought that getting the money home is so complicated for Fortumo!? Or what kind of aspects has the management to consider when going mobile - Henrik from TransferWise explained that.

Thanks also to our great supporters: Department of Business Development at Tartu City GovernmentMooncascadeFortumoMessenteMobi Lab.
