Event description


The “Future of Entrepreneurship” event will bring together world-class leaders to guide you on the journey of the next frontier for entrepreneurs. 100% of ticket revenues will be donated to the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center in San Francisco.

Each of the speakers will be answering the following four questions (specific to their topic/industry):

  1. If anything was possible, what could entrepreneurship look like in the next 10 years?

  2. What organization or person are you most inspired by that is driving us toward that vision?

  3. What do you think is achievable for successful entrepreneurs within the next year?

  4. What can people here at this event do to make that a reality?

We hope you can join us for all/part of the day's agenda below.

  • 5:30pm | Doors open

  • 6:00pm | Networking with beverages and appetizers as well as Hoverboard demos for attendees.

  • 7:00pm | Justis Earle will begin the event by interviewing eight different speakers, one after another, for ~5 minutes each. Ian Utile will then interview six different speakers for ~10 minutes each. This will be live streamed to several dozen Facebook and YouTube pages*.

  • 9:00pm | Post-show networking with beverages and light snacks as well as more Hoverboard demos.

  • 10:00pm | Event ends.

Live Streaming Emcee: Justis Earle
HANSNAP Inventor | Above the Storm Frontman
Video emcee @ Future of Tech, Future of Shasta and Future of the Bay

Host and Moderator: Ian Utile
Entrepreneur in Residence @ TOW, Bethel, Runway
Partner / Investor @ Kukui, WMVAI, 100XR, Modarri, HANSNAP

Ian believes that inspired vision and strategic risk lead to uncommon success. One of the companies that he co-founded (Kukui Corporation) is a great example of this because their revenue has grown every quarter for the last six years, while maintaining profitability, in order to thrive without investors. The Inc. 500 list recently ranked Kukui as the #1 fastest growing private company in San Jose (#76 in the US). Ian's ancestors have raised their families in the San Francisco Bay Area since his forefather, Lieutenant Moraga, founded the SF Presidio in 1776 and the City of San Jose in 1777. Ian likes to think of Moraga as the first great entrepreneur of the Silicon Valley and this heritage motivates him to create a meaningful legacy. His favorite quote is from Abraham Lincoln: "The best way to predict your future is to create it."


Ghost Hand Productions (GHP) is a complete, full-service production company that is uniquely positioned in the Bay Area with all of the top of the line equipment at their fingertips as well as a deep well of seasoned and talented crew and the ability to execute in the corporate and commercial sphere.


Hoverboard Technologies new GeoBlade is a single-wheeled board designed to deliver the thrill of surfing on land. Working in the heart of Silicon Valley, they have engineered the perfect balance of power and control to give a new reality to transportation.
