9.19: Welcome to The Future!
September 19, 2016
Welcome to The Future! Monday, September 19th Covo @ 981 Mission, SF, CA 5:30 - 9:30 pm Join us for a conversation with Gary Shapiro, President and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), author of the New York Times best-seller "Ninja Innovation: The Ten Killer Strategies of the World's Most Successful Businesses", and the man behind CES - "The Global Stage for Innovation", every January in Las Vegas, with 170,000 of his closest friends -- and Andy Grignon, Managing Director & Partner at Siberia San Francisco, and noted Lead Engineer on the iPhone development team at Apple, where he was the recipient of the very first iPhone call from Steve Jobs who affectionately referred to him as "F*ckchop". Both are futurists. Both are renegades. Both have unique Ninja insights on what's around the corner. Together, they'll dive deep into a spirited conversation on top tech trends worth watching... and tech trends worth ignoring. From drones to AI, VR to self-driving vehicles, IOT to WTF -- expect a no-holds barred discussion on what The Future holds for us all. Before we blast off into uncharted territory, the evening will kick-off with 2 hours of networking over cold beer from the Covo taproom and free tacos from SFNT's famous taco truck (thanks to Sonic). After Gary and Andy, we'll open the room up for a Q & A and look forward to hearing your thoughts on what's on the horizon. This event will be held at Covo, a brand new awesome workspace and community of thinkers, doers, and collaborators committed to making change in the world while living life to the fullest. Join us and be a part of the conversation! See you in The Future! Agenda: 5:30 - 7:30 - Networking, Free Tacos 7:30 - 8:30 - Gary & Andy 8:30 - 9:00 - Open Mic!
