Entrepreneurs of leading emerging growth companies and industry focused investors who leverage their talent, influence and capital to identify and grow businesses will share their approach and industry insights.

  • Isaac Bentwich, Chairman of CropX, an Ag-analytics company that empowers farmers to grow more crop with less water, using a simple, scalable software-as-a-service solution integrated with wireless sensors, that optimizes irrigation, applying different amounts of water to different parts of a field.
  • John Denniston, Chairman of Shared-X, an agriculture impact company aiming to generate strong investor returns, while at the same time lift thousands of smallholder farmers out of poverty, by collapsing the dramatic yield gap separating developed and emerging country crop production through the deployment of advanced, sustainable farming techniques. John was previously a Senior Partner at the Silicon Valley venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, where he co-founded and co-ran the firm’s $1 billion Green Growth Fund.

  • Anil Kapuria is Founder of FarmIT.us, Inc., a social enterprise that infuses farm data analytics technology in the global farm value chain to stream line operations for small family farmers. Connected Agriculture is about leveling the field for over 550-million women farmers, about 70% of the total. They feed the world by growing the crops on less than 2.5 acres of land. In most cases their land is less productive, yet they are the backbone of world’s food supply chain and also of their families. Due to inherent biases arising out of age-old traditions, very few have any land rights, and are unable to get farm credits. They have limited access to improved inputs, like seeds, fertilizers, farm equipment, etc. Despite being equally productive, crop yields and prices they realize are lower than their male counterparts. Connected Agriculture for them should enable them to: (a) organize and manage cooperatives, community based formal markets, and value-added products to realize better prices; (b) collaborate with each other and share common costs; and (c) widen their market reach. It should also enhance their knowledge to improve crop yields, and the health and education of their family. FarmIT.us is hosted in the Cloud. It globally empowers women farmers through a low cost smart mobile device that can be now charged even with the solar power. It is a social-enterprise with the mission to infuse ICT and the power of Data Analytics throughout their local farm value chains, so that the connected women farmers can better manage their farms, crops, markets and family welfare.
  • Ted Levinson, Founder and CEO of Beneficial Returns, a new impact investing debt fund supporting the growth of leading social enterprises that operate in emerging markets.

USVP invests primarily in information technology and health care, though the firm is always open to disruptive ideas in other domains. Paul is also Co-Founder of Food System 6, which is enabling the best entrepreneurs to revolutionize the way we produce and distribute food globally.
  • Naveen Sikka, Founder & CEO of Terviva. The company’s mission in a nut shell is to use land better by revitalizing abandoned farmland. We need to produce more food in the next 3 decades than we have in the entirety of human history; but we lose millions of acres of arable land each year. Over the past 6 years, TerViva has aggregated a germplasm library of high-yield varieties of a leguminous tree crop, called pongamia, that produces vegetable oil and protein.

Conversational Computing and Authentic Human Interaction in the Digital Age

As the world has become increasingly digital, we harbor the illusion that we are more connected: We’re always available, always communicating, always sharing and always on. But does this increase in internet connectivity actually lead to more connection with the people and things we love? To stronger emotional ties? It seems conversations have been replaced with transactional texts and human interactions have lost their way in the increasingly-complex social-interaction maze.

As we enter a new era of human-computing interaction in which conversational computing emerges as the most convenient and accessible interface, much will be disrupted. In this candid, forward-looking talk on evolving interfaces, interaction paradigms, and communication habits, Ari will explore emerging trends and opportunities related to messaging and human communication.

The latest product, CMRA, is a smart watch wristband that houses self-facing and outward-facing HD cameras that enable hands-free video chat and lightning fast photos. Essentially, Glide has finally delivered on the long-awaited Dick Tracy wrist communication experience. Glide’s wrist camera, CMRA, enables the launch of the photo and video app ecosystem for the rapidly growing swartwatch market (In less than 2 years of sales, Apple is already the world’s largest watchmaker, behind Rolex, with ~20M Apple Watches shipped to date). MIT Technology Review recently named Ari Roisman, Glide’s Founder and CEO, as a 35 under 35 Innovator.

The Future of Healthcare: The Real Evolution in Life Sciences, Aging & the Business of Healthcare is Ahead of Us

Not long ago, consumers could access health information about as easily as they could access plutonium. This is changing rapidly in the information age. As a result, consumers—rather than doctors, government, insurers, hospitals, or healthcare companies—will own the Healthcare Century. Any healthcare institution that ignores this trend does so at its peril.

Life Extension; Using Biological Research to Reduce or Reverse the Effects of Aging

“We’re in the midst of an extraordinary fight and we need every ounce of manpower we can muster, but the good news is, should we succeed,
we’ll have turned the most awful paradigm that we know on it’s head… that is to say, the inevitability of death.” – Laura Deming

Philanthropy

Americans for Cures

Our mission at Americans for Cures is to advocate for stem cell research and therapy development; and, ultimately, to improve the lives of patients and their families suffering from chronic disease and injury.

It is critical that the public is aware of the breakthroughs in stem cell research and therapy developments that have resulted from the passage of Proposition 71: the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative. We at the Americans for Cures Foundation believe it is our responsibility to report back to the 7 million Californians—including 70+ patient advocacy organizations, 30+ Nobel Laureates, 150+ elected officials, 30+ Chambers of Commerce, business and labor groups, and many other key opinion leaders—who voted in support of Proposition 71.

To accomplish this goal, Americans for Cures is driving a patient advocate-led “Report Back to the Public” communications program to empower patient advocates, and to increase public awareness of breakthroughs in stem cell research and therapy development. As part of this Report Back to the Public, Americans for Cures develops accurate, educational content—all of which is vetted by its Scientific Advisory Board, which is comprised of 25 of California’s leading scientists and physician-scientists—and then disseminates that content to the public through a variety of platforms, including social media, online blogs, paid and earned media, patient advocacy organization networks and more.

Americans for Cures provides information and tools to advocates for stem cell research, to empower them and assist with their efforts to:

  • Distribute factual information about stem cell research;
  • Communicate effectively;
  • Encourage decision-makers to fund research and translate medical research breakthroughs into therapies for patients; and,
  • Find strength and hope in our shared vision and mission to improve the human condition and reduce suffering.

Today, for the first time in history, stem cell research offers real hope to those whose suffering has previously been considered incurable. The road is long and challenging, but scientists and physician-scientists, empowered by the people of California, have accomplished much. The path to success is within our grasp, if we can sustain the advances of the scientists dedicated to stem cell therapies.
