What a way to start the year! We’ve given the keys to the asylum to one of the denizens. And he is pulling in a remarkable cast of local entrepreneurs to provide the fundamental truths for entrepreneurs, founders, the process of growing a start-up and the need for them to be on message all the time. A heads-up – the pictures that will emerge from this exposition will not be the usual saccharine soporific. The moderator, Matthias Galica of BEASTMODE.FM has a gift for music, entrepreneurship and for engaging an audience with strong opinions and keen insights. It will be a stimulating evening.

Start-ups have myriad challenges for the early stage team but none feel the stress as intensely as the founders and especially the CEO. Add that to near celebrity status that founders can attain through proximity to a hot area or cause or technology or market. Bring the need to be always performing , in the moment, part of the show which layers weight and complexity. Combine the challenges, the notoriety, the act and expectations and you brew a toxic cocktail that is consumed routinely by entrepreneurs working in an area like Silicon Beach, in an exploding space like mobile while maintaining a positive aura.

So we want to start a conversation about what all this means and how we deal with the need to be always on stage or in the muck. We want to understand what is real and what is illusion. And we want it to be interactive and participatory.
