VEF hosts Fireside Chat with Tech Legend

The Vancouver Enterprise Forum will be hosting a fireside chat between Sxip Identity’s Dick Hardt and Tech Legend Morgan Sturdy on October 28th. The discussion with Morgan will focus on how to build, run and exit a technology company.

Morgan has been very active in the BC technology community serving as a board member of 20 technology companies. These included CREO which was sold to Kodak for $1 Billion, Hothaus Technologies which was acquired by Broadcom for the one of the highest amounts ever paid for a private BC technology company, UB Video which was sold to Cisco, and TIR which was sold to Phillips. Morgan currently serves as a director of Lighthaus Logic, Teraspan Networks, and ResponseTek.

In addition to the guest speaker, 100-second lightning talks by local entrepreneurs will kick off each month’s event. This format change has been designed to provide attendees with time after the presentations to chat in an unhurried fashion with their colleagues and the presenters about ideas raised in the talks.

Doors open at the Vancity Theatre at 1181 Seymour Street at 5:30pm and the discussion starts at 6pm followed by a light dinner and networking at 7pm. Admission is free for VEF members and $35 for non-members.
