We will host a panel discussion about Securing Funding in 2020 with Soheil Mirpour, Partner at GFC, Elodie Dupuy, Founder at Full In Partners, moderated by Derek Gallagher from Global Shares.

We will follow up with a fireside chat with investor and serial entrepreneur Justin Kan, creator of modern live-streaming with Twitch (sold to Amazon for $1 billion). He was also partner at Y Combinator.

Having been a repeat founder and investor both personally and as a Partner at Y Combinator for many years, Justin is not shy to share his journey and insights into his life philosophy on what makes us happy. For that we are extremely thankful!

Justin previously founded many companies including: Kiko, the first AJAX web calendar; Justin.tv which later became Twitch, a video game streaming platform (acquired for $1 billion by Amazon in 2014) and Socialcam, a mobile video sharing app (acquired for $60mm by Autodesk in 2012); and Exec, an on-demand maid service (acquired by Handybook in 2014).

He’s personally invested in over 100 companies, including Zenefits, Ginkgo Bioworks, Cruise, and Alto Pharmacy. Justin graduated from Yale University with a degree in Physics and Philosophy.
