About this event

Startup Grind Toronto, BrightLane and Aluvion Law are teaming up to give you a chance to have lunch, a beer and meet up with our community to catch this LIVE VIDEO FEED from the Startup Grind 2015 conference in Redwood City, California. Matt Rogers is Founder and VP of Engineering Nest, a company leading the way to smart homes with its Nest Thermostat. In Jan of last year Google acquired Nest for $3.2-billion. Mike Abbott is a General Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers and he was VP of Engineering at Twitter. Register now and get a $5 credit towards our live Fireside Chat with Matt Golden on Feb. 26th. Matt's firm just announced a new $40-million fund "to hunt Unicorns". You can arrive later for additional live feed sessions on the afternoon of Feb. 10th (until 3 pm) but the pizza is hot at noon. Speakers include George Zachary (Charles River Ventures), Eric Migicovsky (Pebble), Alex Hawkinson (SmartThings), Patrick Liewellyn (99Designs) Melody McClosky (StyleSeat), Aileen Lee (Cowboy Ventures), Adi Tatarko (Houzz), David Sacks (Yammer) and Ramona Pearson (Declara). The best thing would be to buy a conference ticket, get on a plane and join us in Silicon Valley! If you can't make it, tweet your questions to me @cdlingHQ and I will try to ask them live from the conference floor.
