Online Event: A View from the West Coast

2020-06-23 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us on Tuesday, June 23rd at 5pm when the ATDC hosts a “virtual fireside chat” with friends based-in the Bay Area who will share how things are looking from their side of the US.

We’ve invited a venture capitalist, executive recruiter, and an entrepreneur to talk about what they are seeing in terms of raising money, valuations, employee attitudes, new approaches to hiring, and workplaces, and more.  Come hear their insights and to get your questions answered, too.

A View from the West Coast” will feature:

  • Graham Ober is an investor with Revolution Ventures which focuses on early-stage venture capital investments in technology-enabled businesses that disrupt existing, multi-billion dollar industries. Revolution looks for opportunities predominately outside of the Bay Area.  Prior to joining Revolution, Graham spent 3 years as a Product Manager at Nerd Wallet.
  • Sam Wholley is a Managing Partner at Riviera Partners, an executive search firm focused on finding senior-level talent and building effective teams for technology companies working closely with founders, board members, and investors to build world-class organizations.  Riviera’s clients include Atlassian, DropBox, GitHub, Pinterest, Uber, and more.
  • Ian Campbell is the CEO of Onscale, a venture-backed tech focused on the $10B engineering simulation market with cloud simulation to break cost and performance barriers and help solve today’s toughest engineering challenges in markets like driverless cars, reusable rockets, air taxis, 5G RF, MEMS/Semi, etc. Ian is no stranger to the ATDC, his previous company Next Input graduated from our program in 2016.
