Albert Einstein was right – you can be in two places at the same time!
While we didn’t set out to prove Einstein’s theory of quantum mechanics (that electrons and atoms can be in many states at the same time), we did manage to be in California and Singapore at the same time!
FirstCOUNSEL’s Founder & CEO, Azmul Haque and COO, Linda Schindler travelled to scenic San Francisco, attending TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2017 and exhibiting FirstCOUNSEL as a Legaltech startup over 18th to 20th September. TechCrunch is the world’s leading authority in debuting revolutionary startups, introducing game-changing technologies and discussing what’s top of mind for the tech industry’s key innovators. Disrupt gathers the best and brightest entrepreneurs, investors, hackers, and tech fans for on-stage interviews, the Startup Battlefield competition, a 24-hour Hackathon, Startup Alley, Hardware Alley, and After Parties. This is also FirstCOUNSEL’s first overseas trip and exhibition, in the heart of the world’s largest tech ecosystem.
Meanwhile back in sunny Singapore, Isa and Bhumi attended the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH) Convergence yesterday. Convergence was equal parts conference, networking event and trade show on emerging technology and innovation, curated for busy executives from a broad range of industries,
including technology, healthcare, education, property, media, telecommunications.
It was a pretty quantum leap for the FirstCOUNSEL team!
