After the pitches, the team at SOSA kindly hosted a full member lunch in our honour, giving us a chance to mix with the local startups and corporate partners.

Everyone then broke for their own private meetings for the afternoon. For myself and Paul Martyn, that included a meeting with Start-Up Nation Central at the beautiful MindSpace co-working hub.
