Catalyst Conference 2019 San Francisco Speakers

Agenda

Featuring high-energy keynotes, inclusive panel discussions, and breakout sessions with leaders at the forefront of the technology and business sectors, Catalyst offers attendees the opportunity to acquire tactical skills, gain the know-how to navigate career twists and turns, and join a community of role models, mentors, and new friends.

Studies show two of the biggest reasons people drop out of tech careers are the lack of role models and mentors. At Catalyst, we offer both, and then some.

At Catalyst Conference SF, the full agenda includes the below.

  • Keynotes and Fireside Chats
  • Skill-building breakout sessions
  • Networking Happy Hour
  • Inclusive panels
  • Speed recruiting and informational interviews with hiring tech companies
  • AMPLIFY Startup Competition for female founders
  • and more!
