"As co-founder of a startup, Capital Connection was a tremendous opportunity to learn from fellow entrepreneurs, established companies and potential investors. While listening to established business leaders, I was able to learn about their mistakes and celebrate their achievements. For newer companies, such as those participating in TechBUZZ, I was able to see what areas were 'hot' and also picked up tips on how to make a compellign pitch.
