Event in English

The world has fundamentally changed and will not go back to normal.

Virtual is replacing physical. The sudden withering of our ability to engage in the “real” world means exponential flowering of this virtual world. 

For technology entrepreneurs the greatest impact comes at these moments of the technological generational change and their ability to see, define and build the new paradigm."

While the world seems chaotic and scary, join us for a look at the big picture and how the breakdown of old systems open opportunities for those who can imagine and execute new paradigms. As an investor, advisor and "The Unicorn Whisperer" Zach thinks a lot about these dramatic changes and the role of open-minded and creative entreprenuers in shaping the future.  


Zachery Coelius is currently an early stage technology investor and advisor. His notable investments include Cruise Automation (bought by GM for $1B+), Branch Metrics, SkySafe and over two dozen other startups. He is an advisor to twenty companies including Hellosign, Swarm (bought by Integral Ad Sciences), Balanced Payments (Stripe) and many others.

Mr. Coelius is also four-time entrepreneur. In his last company he was the co-founder and CEO of Triggit, an advertising technology company that was one of the first Demand Side Platforms, where he raised over $25m in venture capital and exited in 2015 to Linkedin and another financial buyer. He ran Triggit from 2005 to 2015, growing it from 4 to 60 employees and over $30m in revenue.

Zachery attended the University of Minnesota as an undergraduate where he was named by the USA Today as one of the top 20 college students in the nation in 2004. He was also the recipient of the George Mitchell scholarship where he received a master’s degree in International studies at the University of Limerick.
