Session Title: Personalization on Mobile

The connected consumer is now spending more time on their handheld device over their desktop computers, to the tune of 2.8 hours each day according to Mary Meeker’s 2015 Mobile Internet Trends report.  Advertisers are starting to allocate dollars to mobile, eager to reach the consumer in the most relevant, personalized channel possible.  

For the first time ever, mobile advertising commands over 50% of total digital dollars which is expected to surpass $100B in 2016 reaching 2.1B global users who tote smartphones. And consumers are also spending money on mobile. By the end of 2017, consumers are expected to spend $90B in mobile transactions, compared to $12.8B in 2012.

Attendees to this session will learn how the paradigm shift to mobile has demanded that publishers adapt not only their distribution and monetization strategies; but also their presentation of content, experiences and advertising - so that it is personalized, timely and relevant for the consumer. Learn how personalization requires that advertisers, brands and e-commerce companies know who the end user is viewing their content so that they can effectively target, retarget and measure the effectiveness of their spend on mobile.

Session Title: Millennials & The Authentic Web

Here's the most important thing we've learned at Imgur: millennials want their online experiences served up with very different ingredients than previous generations. They want authenticity over authentication. They prefer unifying experiences over isolating feeds. They want quality of content to trump quantity of followers. And they want a say in how the products they use work and perform.

The problem though is that the lecture was never the right instructional model to scale. Effective pedagogy is rooted in experiential, constructivist learning— research conclusively shows that video lectures and quizzes alone are ineffective at driving learning outcomes, and that long-term retention is poor. At NovoEd, teaching is about scaffolding active learning exercises and engaging discussions.

Session Title: Creating a City Playbook for Supporting the Transition from Maker to Manufacturer

Encouraging collaboration and leveraging shared resources increases the impact of government initiatives. In this session, we will share one example of a public-private partnership that the Mayor's Office of Civic Innovation is leading to support the advanced manufacturing sector in San Francisco. The maker movement and urban manufacturing are both rooted and thriving in San Francisco– the Innovation Capital of the World. In fact, San Francisco has already become a national symbol for both the maker movement (Tech Shop is headquartered here, the original Maker Faire originated in the Bay Area) and for the resurgence of urban manufacturing, epitomized by our five-year old SFMade initiative, which now supports more than 540 growing urban manufacturers.

The San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), the Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation, SFMade, and Blackbird Guitars will share their experiences and future plans for strengthening the City’s capacity to support our entrepreneurs’ transition from maker to manufacturer  - with a specific emphasis on the “advanced manufacturing” space.

Panel of Speakers:


  • Kate Sofis, Executive Director, SFMade

  • Laurel Arvantidis, Director of Business Development, SF Office of Economic and Workforce Development

  • Joe Luttwak, Chief Musical Officer, Blackbird Guitars

  • Jay Nath, Chief Innovation Officer, Mayor’s Office (moderator)

Find out how a former tech exec is disrupting the food and beverage industry. Hint Water sprang out of founder Kara Goldin’s frustration with the amounts of sugar and preservatives in juice and soda. After leaving AOL as their VP Ecommerce, Goldin realized that she wasn’t as healthy as she wanted to be. She decided to cut out sweeteners including diet coke, but didn’t love water and couldn’t find anything in the market that both tasted good and was actually good for you. Hint, an all natural fruit-infused water with no sugar, diet sweeteners, or calories, went on to become the fastest growing flavored water in the US. Hear how Hint is disrupting the market today in a massive way— marketing directly to the consumer rather than relying on bricks and mortar.

Using telematics and machine learning, Metromile, the first and only provider of pay-per-mile car insurance in the US, is redefining everything we know about traditional car insurance- from how insurance is delivered and how risk is priced to the services that customers should expect beyond the claim. Join CEO Dan Preston for a tour of Metromile's brand new collaborative, car-themed space and learn more about the benefits of pay-per-mile insurance, including a deep dive into one of the largest benefits- car insurance customers that pay by the mile actually drive less! We'll review what a reduction in driving could mean for the environment and the economy.

Special Message to Attendees from Host Company: Metromile does not have dedicated parking. There are a variety of parking lots available in the area but you will have to pay to park. Since Metromile is largely about driving fewer miles with your car, we'd suggest public transportation, Uber or even your bike (we do have bike racks available inside!). Metromile is on the corner of 3rd & Folsom. Our door is located on Folsom street and has our name on it. We'll have someone to greet you but if for some reason there is nobody there, ring the doorbell to be let in.

Scrappy is turning the Pet Food Industry on its tail. Conventionally raised meat has devastating impact on the environment, on human health and welfare and is unusually cruel on livestock. While more people are moving to sustainably raised meat for themselves, the entire pet food industry is still reliant on conventioal beef, pork and chicken. Scrappy works only with ranchers who raise their animals on pasture. Meet the Scrappy ranchers and learn about the trials and opportunities of raising livestock humanely, on pasture, and why it matters. Starting with a panel discussion and moving quickly on to questions and answers, attendees will hear how humans and pets can be warriors in creating a more sustainable and just food system. Don't want to try our Scrappy treats? This session will also feature Let's be Frank hot dogs, another delivery system for grass fed beef that helps keep our ranchers on the land.

We’ve become accustomed to a world in which politicians regularly vote in favor of special interests and against the opinion of the majority of their constituents. But this is the result of two things that technology will transform – low voter turnout and poorly informed voters. In a future where every citizen can cast an electronic ballot as easily as ordering an Uber, and everyone has immediate access to expert voting guidance from people they trust, it won’t be possible for elected officials to consistently vote against the public interest and remain in office.

From an IP assignment lawsuit, the fight to stretch funding, botching an important customer test and the inability to pay server bills, at times it can be hard to believe. However, for Andrew Stein, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist of Distil Networks, the storyline was uncannily identical to his team’s experience building their own startup – and they made it out the other side.

In this session, Andrew will attest to what it’s like to experience the real-life version of the show, explaining what he learned and how he persevered. Over tasty snacks, Andrew will explain what goes into building a startup, and the qualities needed in order to start a company from scratch.

Session Title: Getting Real with Real Growth

Newcos tend to think about customer growth in terms of the simplistic tactical inputs—paid vs. organic—and the alphabet soup outputs—CAC, CCR, CRR, TUB, MAU, TSM, PBP, LTV. Relevant, for sure, but newcos will often find this approach to be limiting with temporal spurts followed by fleeting retention and value capture. Tod and Chris, along with James, aim to guide newcos, particularly network/marketplace/platform businesses, towards more strategic thinking. Their goal is to help newcos get real with real growth through a framing for architecting and mechanizing a truly sustainable model. Growth that is anchored in a startups’ purpose as an enterprise, it's value proposition to its customers and it’s point of differentiation from its competitors. Learn all about real growth that drives a real valuation for the company over snacks, beer, wine, and soft drinks.
