At the end of last week we attended our first start-up event, Uprise Festival, as the Kompas Team. When we decided to take part in the event we thought it would be a great opportunity to meet new people, show them what we’ve been working on and discuss our ideas. Uprise Festival didn’t disappoint and we had lots of fun showing our work in progress to both fellow entrepreneurs and visitors.
During Uprise we launched a new landing page. We also announced and demoed our latest project: professional CV/LinkedIn review service.
We took this opportunity and checked out the Dutch startup ecosystem. It is refreshing to see what problems are people trying to solve and how they do that. One of my favourite solutions was that of our neighbours at the festival: Heppee, the co-parenting app.
The event took place at the NDSM werf in Amsterdam Noord. Check out this video about our great experience and the awesome vibe at the festival:
