Most years, we begin the Summit at the Getty Villa and conclude it enjoying the Sunset at the Bungalow with a drink and an In-N-Out burger. This year, we are not able to share the Sunny and 72 degrees weather with you—all we can give you is pure stimulation, energy, inspiration, and some great insights from the companies and leaders shaping tomorrow. So get prepared to kick back, log in and pour yourself a Bluestone Lane Coffee (another one of my investments) and enjoy the program.
If you haven’t made up your mind to join us yet, here are the top 5 reasons to attend The Montgomery Summit 2021 presented by March Capital on March 3rd and 4th:
1) Presenting Companies
Presentations delivered by CEOs of 100 carefully-vetted private companies —seed-stage startups, emerging innovators, and market leaders including ASAPP, Unqork, Qumulo, Rubrik, ThoughtSpot, Earnin, Forter, Snyk, Netskope, SparkCognition, Uniphore and more. If you came to the first few Summits in the mid-2000s, you would have heard “The Facebook.” Recently, one investor told me he made “several hundred million” investing in a company he met at the Summit—you have to love this country.

“Accessing Global Capital Markets for Leading Indian Companies” – With an ever growing Indian population, nearly one in five people today is Indian and over 50% of them are under the age of 25.

4) “The Next Big Thing(s)”
Listen in as experts explore how to secure the cloud economy, how we’ll feed the global population in five years and what the future of food looks like, how 5G will really impact your business, how biology and data science will cure and prevent pandemics to come, and why gaming and ESG investing are already the next big things.
5) The Female Entrepreneur Program
What I consider the highlight of the Summit, for the 7th year in a row, The Female Entrepreneur Program will feature the innovative, resilient, and creative women-run companies which are leading the charge in a diverse array of sectors. Find more information on The Female Entrepreneur Program here.
