While tech rules the world, it’s no surprise that people working behind the scenes create history. Celebrating the human spirit that goes into making tech possible, B. Amsterdam is hosting Moonshot Fest 2020 on March 5, 2020, in B.1. The first theme is ‘The human side of tech,’ where one will get a chance to meet some of the best entrepreneurs in the tech industry.
Don’t expect the Moonshot Fest 2020 to be like any other run-of-the mill-event. Silicon Canals’ founder Remco Janssen will host the event and you can rest assured that it will be extremely interesting, to say the least. Additionally, it is not a secret that some of the best ideas come to us while relaxing and/or having a good time among friends. B. Amsterdam has thus roped in Budweiser to host the Moonshot Fest 2020 afterparty, at their rooftop restaurant, café restaurant Bureau till 1 AM.
For the curious ones who are wondering who will be speaking at the event, here’s a brief summary.
