San Francisco, California

Hosted by Google Ventures and Vator, the newly-launched Startup Sessions is a speaker series
featuring one keynote speaker who will share his or her startup stories.
The three-hour event is designed to be a casual gathering of techies - entrepreneurs, developers, marketers, investors - who want to get the inside scoop about some of the highest-profile tech influencers.
Our second event features Aaron Batalion, CTO & co-founder of LivingSocial, which raised $800 million in venture financing from notable backers, including Lightspeed Venture Partners, T. Rowe Price and JP Morgan. LivingSocial has also been very acquisitive, spending more than $350 million in acquisitions.
