San Francisco, day 4
Tuesday September 13 was a day devoted to workshops, a policy hackathon, and a visit to Pinterest HQ.
As I have mentioned before, we have been fortunate to have a great group of mentors. In this case we enjoyed the following sessions in small groups:
- Market growth with: the CEO of CorkBIC, a former Microsoft BizDev VP, and the co-Founder & Director of Blippar
- Funding with: the Chair of Global Venture Forum, a Director at Woodside Capital, and a Partner at Delta Partners Group
- M&A/IPO with: the Principal M&A Integration at Google, a Managing Partner at Woodside Capital, and a Partner at Penningtons Manches
- Communication/PR with: the President of ActiveMedia, and the Associate Director at Oxygen PR
After that we had a policy hackathon competition (more about that in the next blog post).
To top the, yet again intense day, we went to visit Pinterest’s HQ.
