What our attendees say....
A great resource to connect with other freelancers in Europe and get new perspectives. Wish it had been around when I started out as a freelancer!
The Freelancer business platform was a great opportunity to meet people from totally different sectors that we usually do not come across often enough. The platform also created a space for exchange of ideas in all areas and from different profiles of freelancers. New concepts to think about and further explore. Thank you for organising this event.
