Who are you, what’s your back ground? Where you are from?
Clientrol was founded by Marc Nixon from Dublin, Ireland. Marc has worked as a freelance designer for over 15 years and found a gap in the market for a product that will manage support, projects and clients. He wanted to create an application that freelancers could use on a daily basis to manage their day. The Cliental team now includes Kayla Rowen and Michal Kuta.
Why are you planning to come to the Summit / what do you hope to get out of it?
