    I see a lot of engagement here. Entrepreneurs in Bangalore are very confident. They want good content, good networking opportunity and I think TIDE has been structured very well to cater to this need.

    Bala Girisaballa

    President, Techstars India, 2018

    This was amazing. We saw people from different genres come in - from developers to founders - and it was really interesting talking to them. Everybody loved DigitalOcean TIDE as a whole.

    Shamasis Bhattacharya

    VP - Engineering, Postman, 2018

    DigitalOcean TIDE is excellent. The sessions were excellent where I learnt details about where I have to improve, where I have to cut-down and a lot of other things. The connections I have created here will be very useful.
