On Thursday, June 27th, join us as we dive deep into the Internet of Everything: Here, There, and Everywhere.

It's a known fact that building hardware -- and hardware companies -- is just plain hard. From managing the supply chain to the challenges of harnessing big data, companies that are on the leading edge of the IoT revolution are finding that it takes more than a good idea to bring a product to market. Layer in the massive expense of R&D, fabrication, and an ever-growing list of expenses to combat in the Bay Area, the companies that are leading the charge in IoT are forced to deploy creative tactics to break from the crowd.

Join us and senior executives from Iris Automation, Copper, Metropolitan Intelligence, Nodel, and Grush who will share their experiences and best practices of growing their companies both here in the Bay Area and up in Reno, NV, where a new hot pocket of IoT companies is starting to form.

* Grace McKenzie, Director of Operations & Controller, Iris Automation (SF & Reno)
* Doug Richey, CEO, Copper (Reno)
* Stephanie Hayden, CEO & Founder, Metropolitan Intelligence (Oakland)
* Garrett Kinsman, Co-Founder, Nodle (SF)
* Ethan Daniel Schur, Co-Founder, Grush (SF)

* 5:30 - 6:00 pm Networking + refreshments
* 6:00 - 7:30 pm Presentations, discussions
* 7:30 - 8:00 pm Further networking

Light beverages and munchies will be served.

  • Iris Automation

    Grace McKenzie, Director of Operations & Controller

    Iris Automation is building Casia, an AI-based collision avoidance system that helps drones see the world how pilots do. By enabling Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to fly Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS), Iris is the critical missing piece that takes commercial drone operations from theoretical to functional. The company is based in San Francisco and is led by a team with experience at NASA, Boeing, and Nvidia, including PhDs in computer vision. Iris is a key partner on multiple FAA UAS Integration Pilot Programs, a participant of NASA’s Unmanned Traffic Management program and a participant of Transport Canada’s BVLOS Technology Demonstration Program.

  • Copper

    Doug Richey, CEO

    Copper modernizes POS systems by turning customers’ phones into secure, pay-at-the-table terminals and by making data accessible via cloud API — with NO app to download.

  • Nodle

    Garrett Kinsman, Co-Founder

    Nodle builds a new way to monetize apps without impacting user experience by showing ads, or more importantly impacting user privacy. Nodle uses Bluetooth to locate and connect IoT devices around each phone. The Nodle Network has over 5M DAU smartphones on their network, and discover nearly 100M IoT devices each day.

  • Metropolitan Intelligence

    Stephanie Hayden, CEO & Founder

    Metropolitan Intelligence's Augmented Neighborhood Watch is a Resilient Awareness and Investment platform that connects constituent-owned micro-grid IoT infrastructure, Computer Vision systems, and service providers to enable 24/7 community monitoring the way individuals want to be watched and alerts service agencies with streaming data to empower providers to address issues as they arise and share real-time status with the community. Pilots in Oakland, CA enable home owners, businesses, and schools to capture data via IoT infrastructure they own and manage, and determine what they want to do with the data to enable service agencies to stop illegal Sideshows, Dumping, and injuries/fatalities at high risk intersections. Public Sector agencies will receive alerts, streaming insight, and location data to help resolve the issues real-time and share data for future evidence management and legal proceedings. Bounties may be assigned and issued to social media to help track and deliver intelligence used to apprehend groups involved in issues community members want to resolve and the Public Sector has the authority to close. MI Augmented Neighborhood Watch empowers constituents to take back their communities, grown data value and IoT infrastructure, control and sell their own data, grow trust between government agencies, and open funding and investment channels for Opportunity Zones and Improvement Districts.

  • Grush

    Ethan Daniel Schur, Co-Founder

    Grush is the Gaming Toothbrush for kids. Grush transforms the brushing chore into fun and interactive games using a motion sensing IoT toothbrush that connects via Bluetooth to a mobile device that runs fun and interactive brushing games, and uploads detailed brushing information to the cloud for tracking and analysis by parents and dentists.
