Where: Stanford Faculty Club (Parking and Directions)

Stanford, CA 94305

When: Tuesday, February 19, 2013 starting at 6pm.

Each year VLAB sets out to tap the minds of the most innovative emerging young entrepreneurs. And while Gen X took to redefining online experiences such as search (Google, Yahoo) and ecommerce (Amazon, Ebay), a new generation of entrepreneurs is now coming into their own. The Millennials, as the Gen Y are called, are bold, adventurous and ready to re-envision the future that one app, wearable device, and social media share at a time. This year’s “Young Entrepreneurs” will feature startups with founders born in the 1980s and 1990s vying for an opportunity to create their own niche in Silicon Valley.

Although all of them younger than the age of 30, all are accomplished, confident, and incredibly collaborative. They are poised to impact the world, now, and in the years to come.

Our panel will include:
  Eric Migicovsky, CEO and Founder of Pebble Watch
  Cameron Robertson, Founder of Apigy and Maker of Lockitron
  Ernestine Fu, Venture Capitalist at Alsop Louie
  Matt Mullenweg, Co-Founder of WordPress, Founder of Automattic, Founder and Principal of Audrey Capital
