"Attending 3DHEALS 2018 was definitely a beneficial and educational experience! I was able to learn from leaders in the industry, who were all very approachable. Even though I did not win the pitch competition, the process and feedback from investors were extremely beneficial to me. I still keep in touch with many of the individuals I originally met at 3DHEALS 2018."
