On May 30, 2013, Geoff Lewis commandeered the atrium at the Innovacorp Enterprise Centre and as you can see from the pictures, we were happy to oblige. That evening, Geoff bestowed his wisdom upon the audience from his experiences as a principal with FOUNDERS FUND and as an entrepreneur. (Previously, Geoff was co-founder and CEO of TOPGUEST, the social loyalty software. In 2011, he sold Topguest to Switchfly in an eight figure transaction.) Not too shabby, Geoff.

We were also blessed with  ORIS4's Reza Kazemipour and LEADSIFT’s Tapajyoti (Tukan) Das’ presence, who captivated us with their stories from the start-up world.

Innovacorp's Thomas Rankin and Volta's executive director, Milan Vrekic, shoot the proverbial you-know-what.

The Man Himself. You're welcome, ladies.

Oris4's Peter Hickey and Reza Kazemipour have arrived.

The anticipation.

A little CrossFit, anyone? Bueller? ...Bueller?

LeadSift gets our attention...

And so do you, Mr. Lewis.

Q&A

Innovacorp's Dawn Umlah fits in well.

OK, just one more. Don't say we never did anything for you.
