Words of advice to entrepreneurs from our speakers:

Frame the roles on your team around what individuals enjoy doing, giving you and them more leverage: “Do only the things you can do.”

– Kristen Hamilton, CEO of Koru

You can build a winning company from any geography: “Silicon Valley has gone from being a place to a state of mind.”

– Ajay Royan, Managing General Partner of Mithril Capital 

Be able to sell on your mission and vision to your first employees:  “Starting a company may make a lot of sense, but deciding to be employee number 20 doesn’t always make sense. The company needs to have a story—a clear vision that attracts people”

– Michelle Zatlyn, COO of Cloudflare
