Where ‘The business’ meets ‘the science’
7 years connecting industry leaders, pioneering data tech companies and the next generation of talent.
In 2013 Adyen, Shazam and 20 data-centric company founders many whose companies began outside the US met investors and industry leaders in Mountain View. The first GVF was less than 100 people and topics focused more on the challenges of going global than on technology. For most of the Bay Area delegates international was a bridge too far.
For the 7th year we invite a community industry leaders and data practitioners to join GVF — distributed this year across the week of activities — to meet, gain insights and find Pathways to cooperation. Thank you to our panelists, advisors and partners. Let’s grow the human connectors as the data grows anyway around us. Event will fill soon.
