Ben Larson (, Head Pitch Coach and Director of the Founder Institute Bay Area, will be giving a Lunch & Learn at WeWork Golden Gate titled Weathering the Bubble.

There are a lot of rumblings about a potential bubble in the tech industry. Is there a bubble? The anxiety around this topic seems to grow as the months pass. Whether it's eminent or happens over the next 10 years, we can say with relative certainty that there will be another downturn in our industry, but I'm confident in saying that investment will never disappear, competition just becomes stiffer and the requirements change. What we can focus on is how to weather such an environment and to position your company for success.

Join us to learn how to best present your company in this evolving environment.

Ben is a Bay Area entrepreneur, coach, and advisor. He currently manages global operations for the Founder Institute's 100+ cities and is a Director and Mentor of their local Bay Area chapters, including San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Oakland. He advises early stage companies around the world with a focus on customer development, design, and of course, startup storytelling (i.e. pitching).
