1. Welcome

Hi everyone and welcome to my second addition of the BASES Digest! For everyone new to the Digest here is where I publish the best tech and entrepreneurship events from BASES, Stanford, and the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Based on your feedback from the last digest we have changed the format somewhat to include featured events for dates beyond this week and highlighting feature event titles to make them easier to read. We couldn't do Bold headings for all the events or more graphics but we will try to change this soon!

Thank you for the feedback though and I would appreciate any more comments or questions emailed directly to me (see the last section).
