We’re dazzled by technology just as everyone else has been, just as everyone will continue to be—it represents the new, the innovative, the exciting.
I came to DIG SOUTH because I’m really interested in places where new things are starting … because that’s a big part of what I do at BuzzFeed. And I was also looking forward to seeing a lot of the other speakers—it’s a huge and varied list of people to connect with.
The presenters Stan and his team have managed to assemble at DIG South are incredible. Each day the place is buzzing with anticipation that's almost tangible. If you're looking for an interactive conference in the Southeast, look no further. DIG South will give you the insight, atmosphere, and tools to push your career and company forward.
I’m so happy to be here in Charleston where it’s nice, warm and sunny. And that’s just the people! If you knew what the weather was like, it would even be better.
Within one week of launching our startup at DIG SOUTH, we had a contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars to live stream the NFL Draft Day.
I came to DIG SOUTH first off because Charleston is an awesome town and also I love tech conferences. I spent 8 years in Austin and really loved going to SXSW and being a part of that culture, and this seems like a new version of that but very much based in the Charleston atmosphere. And so the chance to come be a part of that was really exciting.
I’m so excited to be here I can’t stand it … I didn’t get to go to SXSW and … DIG SOUTH is a similar type of Conference where you can be both creative and entrepreneurial.
DIG SOUTH supports what is uniquely important about the region, about Charleston—you have a cross-section here of health and government, tech and art, even robotics, not to mention really good food. And that is exactly what’s needed.
I was so excited to attend DIG SOUTH this year for a lot of reasons. It’s so exciting now as the nation, and even the world, turns its attention to all the potential of our region. So the neat thing about being here is connecting with people who are passionate about this region, who are passionate about tech, who are thought leaders, creators and innovators.
I attend events all over the country and DIG SOUTH is one of the best. I look forward to spending time in historic Charleston every year with other industry leaders. The speakers are inspirational, the venues are unique and the networking is top notch. DIG SOUTH has terrific energy and a great crowd, all interested in learning and thinking about “what’s next?”
I’ve been really excited to come to DIG SOUTH. Everyone I have talked to in the industry and in Atlanta has said it’s a great Festival and a great opportunity to network. I’m always looking to get better connected in our marketplace, particularly in the Southeast … in terms of getting to know other companies like ours, learn from other people … but really it’s an opportunity to find a way to better connect within our region with other like-minded individuals.
I see that there is a vision for this to become something much bigger, and I wanted to be a part of that early on.
Everything about it has been great. The media coverage, the entrepreneurs who are here and the support it’s getting from the community—all of those qualities are really important to having a great event and I think [DIG SOUTH] has it in spades.
I was in California in the late ’90s and there was a lot of energy out there on a grand scale, and we’re starting to see it here in Charleston. I think DIG SOUTH is really capturing that. We’re getting to rub shoulders with some other entrepreneurs and startups, and the energy is starting to feed itself.
