Disrupt SF 2018 was one of the biggest events included in our commercial roadmap. This conference is a “must go” for everyone working in or with technology, which is why we chose it for the official release of Dali’s first version – and it was a blast.
We decided to stay in San Francisco for the week, not only for the event, but also to grab the opportunity of meeting fellow startups and colleagues from the Silicon Valley ecosystem. In the quest for inspiration, we came across HP’s garage in Palo Alto, also known as the birthplace of Silicon Valley.
Disrupt SF started on September 4th with the Welcome Reception at Wework Montgomery Station. But it wasn’t until September 6th, when we were at the Startup Alley, that the real whirl happened. Out of more than 1,000 companies in the areas of AI, Blockchain, Fintech, and Mobility, we realised not even a handful of them had a VR solution for data analytics . Our day exhibiting at Startup Alley was tiring but very rewarding mainly because of the people we met and had the chance to experience our solution and the connections we built.
Besides attending some of the talks and trying the new off-stage “Q&A” area, we met with several investors, which was one of the best parts of Disrupt SF 2018. (Thanks CrunchMatch for providing a good matchmaking between startups and investors!)
Overall, we returned home with a feeling of accomplishment. Dali’s first version is out and we got a bunch of people eager to start using it. Now, our team is going to keep pushing boundaries to ensure we build something that adds real value while transforming your (virtual) reality.
