4:00 PM16:00

Towards Immutable Design: How Blockchain Changes (Almost) Everything About Design

Please join fellow Bay Area entrepreneur Matt Cutler, founder & CEO of Blocknative (www.blocknative.com), for a 120 minute interactive discussion focused on how blockchain forces a foundational rethinking of Design – and just how early we are in this process. Expansive in scope, the discussion will range from private keys and wallet types to story telling and modern mythology.

Who this is for: Entrepreneurs who are interested in diving deeper into the countless ways that blockchain-based technologies intersect with the human experience – in ways both modern and ancient.

About your guide: Blocknative is the seventh startup (!!) Matt has cofounded. He’s from Boston but moved to the Bay Area in 2014 after Cisco bought his last company. He’s @mcutler on most major social media platforms, including Twitter, Linked, Facebook, and Medium. Matt lives in Marin with his wife, three kids, and two dogs.

Mudit Goyal: What makes a successful entrepreneur?

IS AN INDIVIDUAL'S INNOVATIVE MINDSET LEVEL AND POWER TO INNOVATE MEASURABLE, AND HOW?

MUDIT GOYAL FROM UC BERKELEY WILL BE PRESENTING HIS RESEARCH - PLEASE JOIN US TO LEARN FROM HIM AND GIVE HIM FEEDBACK. THIS WEDNESDAY AT NODE!

Opening the doors to non-members at 6. Join us for a glass of wine before the presentation begins

Presentation begins at 7pm.

With the advancement of Big Data technologies, and the creation of new, open source Machine Learning and Data Science tools, we now have new methods and approaches to obtain quantitative entrepreneurship research results. This approach benefits from a seemingly inexhaustible source of information, i.e. data. In this paper, we apply data science techniques from UC Berkeley’s Data-X framework to research socio-economic characteristics and traits, related to successful entrepreneurs, and their link to early stage venture success. Such techniques include the use of web scraping scripts, data cleaning, the creation of data pipelines, and visualization using open source Python libraries (e.g. Scikit-learn, Pandas) as well as other tools commonly used in the Machine Learning development stack. This paper offers two types of results of the performed quantitative study, that is in the intersection between Machine Learning and Entrepreneurship Research

(Fig 1.). First that the Machine Learning development stack offers powerful tools to produce entrepreneurship research results, and this might be a new paradigm in this field of research. Second, we can now quantitatively verify from public data sources that, contrary to popular belief, a successful entrepreneur is not a young, college drop-out that had a genius idea in their dorm room. Instead, the most predictive trait of entrepreneurial success is the work experience of the founder, i.e., the number of years the founder has been employed before starting their company. Optimally they will have been employed for 10 to 12 years.

The Berkeley Innovation Index (BII) is both an open research concept, and a global collaboration project born out of interdisciplinary research by UC Berkeley faculty. In cooperation with industry professionals, BII has been developed to offer simple yet powerful ways to measure something never before measurable – an individual's innovative mindset level, and their power to innovate.

How to be Human: A Fireside Chat- Doug Rushkoff & Seth Goldstein

Please join us for a deep dive on what it means to be human in the age of surveillance capitalism and how we can create real communities (like Node!) to foster humanity in the age of machine intelligence.

Doug Rushkoff is author of the new book Team Human. Team Human is a manifesto—a fiery distillation of preeminent digital theorist Douglas Rushkoff’s most urgent thoughts on civilization and human nature. In one hundred lean and incisive statements, he argues that we are essentially social creatures, and that we achieve our greatest aspirations when we work together—not as individuals.

"A provocative, exciting, and important rallying cry to reassert our human spirit of community and teamwork.”—Walter Isaacson

https://teamhuman.fm/

There will be signed books by Doug himself available at Node after his talk at Node. We ask members/attendees to contribute $20 if they would like a signed book.
