  • This was a hugely insightful conference. What’s different about this event is the ecosystem they’ve created. A blend of technical founders, engineers, investors, and corporates who are trying to get in the weeds to understand what’s practically driving change.

  • Shadow Summit was a great event for learning more about a variety of subjects including technology innovation within AEC as well as what was going on in Atlanta’s start- up scene.

  • Shadow Summit provided a great environment for us to connect with real customers and partners we otherwise would not have access to otherwise. We met MiKen Development at last year’s Shadow Summit during the startup pitch competition. MiKen Development was looking to bring offsite construction into their projects without compromising on design. When they saw our pitch at the competition, they immediately reached out and today we have an incredible partnership in place.
