We couldn’t run Business of Software Conference without our wonderful sponsors. Their support ensures we can focus on putting together a great schedule of interesting speakers, and help provide people who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to attend with Scholarship tickets.
Read on to find out who is supporting BoS Europe 2019, and how your company could get involved too.
Thanks to our sponsors: Balsamiq, New Peak Partners, Draper Esprit, YouCanBook.Me, & SoftwarePromotions
