Since 2014, our series of more than twenty fireside chats and panels sponsored by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati has been TechFire's most popular event series. Stay tuned for details of the next event coming soon. Sign up to receive an invitation to future events when details are announced.
A bit of history: after years of fireside chat events, in 2017 we launched a new series of events, called the Road to Series A, designed to help founders prepare build and grow their startups, from scratch, to Series A funding. Each event focused around a different topic. In December, we focused on Building a Team. Before that, on September 13, we talked growth strategies, featuring Greylock Partners' Casey Winters, an advisor to Airbnb, Reddit, Tinder, Eventbrite and other leading companies, and the former Growth Lead for Pinterest. On July 26, we focused on seed funding, and on April 19 at Google LA we looked at product/market fit.
Burbank Tech Talks:
April's event is on April 26, featuring a discussion on the future of internet privacy. RSVP.
We're thrilled to be continuing our partnership with The City of Burbank, continuing our Burbank Tech Talks series in Spring 2018. Thanks to the 400+ people who registered for March's Burbank Tech Summit, and stay tuned for info on upcoming Burbank Tech Talks events.

December's event on the Future of Tech featured CAA's Michael Yanover, our November event was on the Future of Work with an all-star panel from PwC, WeWork and Uber, our October event featured a local Burbank tech success story, and our September 27 event featured a look at legal issues for startups.
Earlier 2017 events included: July 18 with Thomas Gewecke, Chief Digital Officer and Executive Vice President, Strategy and Business Development, for Warner Bros. Entertainment. Gewecke oversees global Strategy, Corporate Development and Technology functions for Warner Bros.
