Tired of boring Zoom calls? So are we. We're turning the virtual event world on it's head with the first Digital Fight Club, Virtual Edition

About this event
Just like IRL, we're putting 2 experts in their fields up against each other in front of a raucous virtual audience.

What does that look like?

Experience the fights with your friends on your own virtual couch
Heckle & React verbally and electronically like you would in person
Network by moving to another couch
Chat the audience up
We do this in front of hundreds CEOs, technologists, entrepreneurs and investors not to mention thousands in the audience.

So there is no pressure.

Then we let the refs and audience (that’s you) vote for a winner within the virtual experience. That’s not boring. That’s fun.

…and you might learn something.
