About this event

This is NOT the usual story...

It's a well-known fact that Guha Bala has seen most sides of the video game continuum; as co-founder with brother Karthik of Vicarious Visions for 25 yrs. - $4 billion+ in sales & home of world-renown games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Guitar Hero, Skylanders & Crash Bandicoot. Today, Guha is President of innovation investment company Velan Ventures, & Velan Studios, focused on the discovery of new play patterns.

But that's not what we're going to talk about - because you can get the rest of the standard story elsewhere. 

We'll discuss Guha's perspective on :

 - Building Community Vibrance

- Startups: How to Take that First Step

- Exploring Why Some Businesses Fail

-  Proximity & the Impact of Density of Services
