Heading to CES 2017

Managing Director

I’ll be at CES from Wednesday to Friday. I went for many years, punted for the past few years, but decided to go again this year.

Techstars runs a big program called the Startup Stage that has three days of programming. It also co-hosts Eureka Park, at the Sands, Level 1, Hall G which is a collection of around 600 startups. I’ll be hanging out there when I’m not walking to CES floor, which typically takes me a day.

My dad will be with me. We love to walk to the show floor together and just be together for a couple of days. While he’s a doctor, he’s been a tech nerd since I was little, always alongside me as I played around with new stuff. He’s endlessly a kid around this stuff — always trying new things, talking to everyone, and just having the time of his life.

I’m giving two talks this year at CES as part of Startup Stage at the Sands, Level 1, Hall G.

I don’t go to CES to find the next great thing. I go to soak myself in what companies are releasing now. I run into (randomly — I don’t schedule anything) a lot of friends from the industry. I relax into the density of the amount of stuff getting shipping in 2017, as I think about where it will be in 2022.

And — I hang out with my dad. Which I love.
