John Furneaux, CEO at Hive

John Furneaux CEO Hive Entre Event

John leads Hive as CEO and co-founder, and received his MA in Mathematics and Law from the University of Cambridge and is a keen pilot and cyclist. Starting his career as a strategy consultant to Fortune 500 companies, he saw the serious challenges teams faced while trying to work together effectively. It was the catalyst for a career-long specialism in the tools teams use to achieve their goals productively. After leading the national implementation of Sharepoint for the UK’s Department of Education, John left the consulting world to join Huddle, a small UK collaboration platform, as employee 12.

Starting on the frontline, John rose to lead Global Customer Success, building a large team of collaboration specialists across the USA and UK as Huddle grew through Series D to become Europe’s largest collaboration platform. Taking advantage of a huge adjacent opportunity in the team collaboration space, John taught himself to code and built the first version of Hive, a collaboration hub, and project management tool, in 2015. Hive has now grown to a company of over 30 employees in the US and several more overseas and boasts a client list that includes Starbucks, Uber, Netflix, and Google.

Nihal Mehta, Founder of ENIAC Ventures

Nihal Mehta Entre Event

At Eniac, Nihal is called the human Rolodex, thanks to the thousands of connections he has made with some of the world’s top companies and brands. He developed many of these connections over the past 20+ years while founding five different tech startups. Prior to founding Eniac, Nihal was the founding CEO of LocalResponse, where he grew revenues 2153% in three years and landed them on Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Companies. Nihal also was the founding CEO for buzzd, the first real-time mobile cityguide, and ipsh!, one of the first full-service mobile marketing agencies in 2001, which was acquired by Omnicom (NYSE: OMC) in 2005.

Early in his career, Nihal honed his ability to spot top entrepreneurial talent by investing in Admob (acquired by Google), Swiftkey (acquired by Microsoft), Tapad (acquired by Telenor), Tala, and Uber to name a few. Because of his experience in both building and funding top technologies, he frequently guest lectures at business schools around the country on entrepreneurship and mobile marketing and is published in over 15 books and white papers on the subject.

Outside of the office Nihal loves to spend time with his wife Reshma and is a big supporter of her non-profit Girls Who Code. Around town, you will usually see him with his son Shaan and beagle-bulldog Stanley. Nihal is the life of the party, which is why he always spearheads Eniac events. Nihal graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a BA in Philosophy and a BSE in Computer Science.
