Wanting a change, he later delved deep into social and emotional intelligence through academic study and personal experiments. At college, he realized he wanted to work with people and switched majors from Computer Science to Human Performance. After years of self-training, Craig discovered Jaunty and became Eric's apprentice. Craig has coached people in social dynamics and dating through Jaunty since 2012. When he's not exploring positive psychology and self-development, he enjoys learning about metagames and being outdoorsy with his dad. Both Eric and Craig spent thousands of hours experimenting and researching the limits of social behavior to create the tried and tested course material for Jaunty. They are tirelessly dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and become social dynamos. FAQs Location?

This year we are launching monthly talks regarding hot topics foreseeing the GTS Conference in October (24th& 25th). The opening panel is going to be about IPOs. It’s pouring tech IPOs! After a burst of initial public offerings in 2018, the IPO pipeline for 2019 looks even more alluring. Uber, Zoom, Slack, Palantir Technologies, Robinhood, Pinterest, Postmates and more are expected to go public this year.

Many of their private valuations are enormous, with Uber last valued at $120 billion and The We Company (formerly WeWork) at $47 billion. Now companies tend to stay private twice longer than 10 years ago and to go IPO with now profits. With so many private investors willing and able to provide capital, you might wonder, why bother going public at all? What is fair valuation? How comfortable are investors in this year’s wave of IPOs betting on companies that have yet to prove they can make money? Get your answers to these questions and more.
