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.
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.
We’ve seen incredible growth in L.A. — attracting 4000+ registrants from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, 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 Re/code and the Los Angeles Business Journal.
The following is a sampling of just some of our past speakers:
