Harper Reed
Keynote Speaker

VentureSeries + 4Q VenturePitch Orlando

"What do custom-designed T-shirts and presidential campaigns have in common? Harper Reed, chief technology officer for the Obama campaign, rose to prominence because he knew the answer: They both can benefit from websites that engage users and encourage community participation-and, in the process, gather valuable data."  (Discover Magazine).

Meet the mind behind who applied Threadless's techniques to politics to generate money, volunteers, and, ultimately, votes that led to Obama's reelection.  Listen to his story and learn how this pioneer in technology nurtures his vision and uses his radical approach to realize his entrepreneurial ventures and endeavors.   

Early stage technology entrepreneurs, investors and service providers, this special event has it all - education, networking, and funding, in this double header program:
