Trends today quickly emerge and can just as quickly vanish. That means a lot can happen in three months, so I’m taking this opportunity to look back at RISE Conference 2015 – a ‘start-up party’ in Asia organised by the Web Summit team, to see if the topics discussed have already become old news or continue to move the needle.
For anyone who doesn’t know about Web Summit, it is one of the world’s most influential tech events, growing from 400 to over 22,000 attendees since it started in 2011. The RISE Conference, its Asian equivalent, kicked-off with a bang; attracting over 5,000 attendees from over 75 countries and I was lucky enough to receive a ticket as part of the Women in Tech programme.
