Our Keynote Speaker is Fred Wang.


Fred Wang, Trinity Ventures: Trinity Ventures has lead TWO Series A financings for local tech companies in the past year.  That is great news for San Diego.  A top-tier Silicon Valley fund … we’ll find out what factors lead to their investments here.  How did and DealStruck get their attention, and what key factors garnered them a term sheet?  Is this perhaps a bellwether sign, that more SV-based fund will be snooping for quality tech deals here?  Come learn more from the man leading Trinity’s foray into San Diego.
