Upcoming Alliance Events

The core of the Alliance will always be our private, invitation-only Alliance groups which meet regularly throughout Northern California. In addition to our private groups, the Alliance brings leaders together in a variety of ways to enable our members to connect with other leaders. You can check out some of these additional Alliance activities below. If you would like to be invited, contact us.

Keynote: Geoffrey Moore, Managing Director, Geoffrey Moore Consulting
Date: Friday, February 01, 2019
Time: 7:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Location: Santa Clara

Geoffrey Moore is an author, speaker, and advisor who splits his consulting time between start-up companies in the Mohr Davidow and Wildcat Venture Partners portfolios and established high-tech enterprises, most recently including Salesforce, Microsoft, Autodesk, F5Networks, Gainsight, Google, and Splunk.  Moore’s life’s work has focused on the market dynamics surrounding disruptive innovations. His first book, Crossing the Chasm, focuses on the challenges start-up companies face transitioning from early adopting to mainstream customers. It has sold more than a million copies, and its third edition has been revised such that the majority of its examples and case studies reference companies come to prominence from the past decade. Moore’s most recent work, Zone to Win, addresses the challenge large enterprises face when embracing disruptive innovations, even when it is in their best interests to do so. It’s time to stop explaining why they don’t and start explaining how they can. This has been the basis of much of his recent consulting.

Following Geoffrey's keynote, members will begin their private Alliance Group meetings at 9:00 am. We will also host a CEO Luncheon after the meeting, from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm, to enable our members to meet CEOs from throughout the Alliance.
