With more than 45 events since our founding in 2013, TechFire has been featured in Techmeme's editorial list of nationally- and internationally significant tech conferences, and our programs have a reputation for attracting titans of tech to take the stage. 

C-SPAN broadcast our recent Summit on the Self-Driving Car Revolution on national TV -- and you can watch the video online here.

Our speakers include prominent tech leaders from Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, New York, and beyond, including partners from leading VC firms like Kleiner Perkins, Greylock, SV Angel, CRV, True Ventures, and Upfront Ventures, and founders of hot startups like HotelTonight, about.me, Dollar Shave Club, and many more.

Our sponsors include industry leaders and Fortune 500 companies, including Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Deloitte, EY, CBRE, Cresa, Aon, BlackLine, J2 Global, and more. We also work in a consulting capacity leveraging our speaker relationships to help organize outside events on behalf of consulting clients such as the City of Burbank, Fairfax County, and WSGR – Wharton | San Francisco.

Across our 45 events, we've attracted many thousands of attendees registrants from across the nation and as far away as even Europe for our L.A. area events. A recent media headline said it best: “It’s Official: TechFire is Catching Fire”. Other press highlights include C-SPAN, Recode and the Los Angeles Business Journal.

TechFire's Founder & CEO is David C. Murphy -- read more about David on our Who We Are page.
