VLAB is back with one of the most anticipated events of the year: Young Entrepreneurs – Under 30 and On Fire. We are tapping into the minds of some of the most successful innovators under 30 in the heart of Silicon Valley. They are doing it all: raising money, leading talented teams and steering their vision forward.

Five young entrepreneurs, all under the age of 30 will share their stories as they inspire us with the power of their ideas and their relentless passion to execute.

Moderated by Adam Draper, CEO and Founder of Boost Incubator, our panel will feature:

Michael Carter, CEO at Game Closure, raised M to tackle the hardest problems in mobile gaming and is recognized by W3C for his initial design of the HTML5 WebSocket real-time technology that is used in all modern web browsers

Melody McCloskey, CEO at StyleSeat, a woman entrepreneur recognized in 2010 by Business Insider as a Silicon Valley 100

James Tamplin, CEO & Co-Founder at Firebase, a co-founder of a realtime application platform that allows developers to synchronize data instantaneously

Lat Ware, Founder at Crooked Tree Studios, a game developer who successfully launched a game with telekinesis like powers on Kickstarter

Marcus Weller, Ph.D., CEO & Chairman of Skully Helmets, the CEO of a heads-up display motorcycle helmet which won the coveted DEMO God award at their 2013 launch

    I made the mistake of not previewing this video in its entirety for using in a high school business class. The material is awesome, but the language (IMHO) is inappropriate for my audience.

    the guy who is conducting the interview, needs to be more confident. This is a very good video. I am an engineer and always trying to come up with solutions. Got a business minor and kind of opened my eyes and realized that this is it!!! I am an entrepreneur. Super cool!

    But I liked that he challenged the ideas of the other guests b/c that’s what the host should’ve been doing, which he wasn’t. But he was very toolish.
