Closing Founder Session with Layla Shaikley: A Startups Perspective on "Demo Days"

Dirk Ahlborn is the CEO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Inc. (HTT) and the Founder and CEO of JumpStarter Inc. Founded in 2013, HTT designs and builds the most highly profitable, fastest, safest, and environmentally friendly transportation system for passengers and goods. HTT utilizes JumpStarter’s crowdfunding and crowd collaboration platform JumpStartFund and is thus able to leverage technology and a 480+ team of global experts to bring disruptive innovation to the traditional transportation industry. Hyperloop first gained public interest when entrepreneur Elon Musk published a white paper describing a futuristic mode of transport that would transport people from Los Angeles to San Francisco in about thirty minutes. Musk handed the concept to the public and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies rose to the challenge.
Riva-Melissa Tez is Managing Partner at Permutation Ventures, a research-led investment fund based in San Francisco that focuses on machine learning and artificial intelligence. Previously, Riva founded Berlin Singularity -- a group promoting discussions on emerging technology in mainland Europe. Through Berlin Singularity, she launched Kardashev Communications, aiding the business development of early-stage biotech companies to connect them with seed and growth capital. Riva began her career as an entrepreneur at the age of 18 when she established a retail business in London, which still stands today. She has held teaching positions at the DAB and HTW Business Schools in Germany and has guest-lectured at Oxford, Birkbeck and Stanford. Riva writes for a number of publications on topics such as artificial intelligence, finance and philosophy and represented machine learning in a 2016 Microsoft campaign for The Economist.
Layla Shaikley was a NASA intern, cofounder of TEDxBaghdad, and most recently co-founder of Wise Systems. Wise Systems is an MIT spinout software company that makes realtime routing decisions for enterprises delivering goods and services. Layla’s venture backed company is routing vehicles for a variety of Fortune 500 companies — and has been a successful example of a startup breaking into the world of enterprise.
