I really enjoyed being part of iCU Helsinki 2018. It was a great networking opportunity with industry professionals and entrepreneurs. It is a 1-day event and fits perfectly into schedules. Much to follow-up and I hope to be a part of it again.

KEITH SHAW — Equinix

I do like the more intimate format of the iCU events and I think moving them often is a great recipe, as it allows a local market to interact deeply with the wider industry.

iCU is a welcome addition with events that are well organized and great for networking, combining deep insights into key industry topics and a highly relevant crowd of participants, all in casual and intimate setting.

TESTIMONIALS

I attended the iCU Helsinki panel on a subject which has been close to my line of work for the past decade — Cloud Computing — Driving cultural change and realizing the economic benefits. It was a pleasure to attend this very professional industry event, we had a good mix in the panel from local and global perspective and fantastic dialogues and networking with high caliber attendees. Looking forward to attend again.

On June 5TH we experienced the first ever iCU event in Helsinki, and I am sure most of us share the feeling that we had an excellent start for a new tradition. Lot of valuable networking occurred and good trading of information was made. Highly professional iCU organization together with us partners succeeded to create truly a memorable day!
