How can entrepreneurs today build big new global companies—what ideas are paying off, and what previously successful strategies no longer work? Which fields or geographies likely hold the keys to future success? This year’s Napa Summit will bring together leading high-tech innovators, executives, and investors with unique perspectives on the U.S. and global innovation landscapes for an intimate, invitation-only summit in the heart of California’s wine country.
This extraordinary day-and-a-half-long retreat will feature candid chats, entrepreneur and investor stories, interactive panel (and unpanel) discussions, lots of networking time, and great food and wine. The conference registration fee of $1250 includes wine reception, vineyard tour, and all meals (lodging is not included).
The Napa Summit is by invitation only. If you’d like to request an invitation, please send us an e-mail at email@example.com. Include your name and contact information, title, company, and a brief bio. If selected, we will send you registration information. The deadline for invitation requests is May 21.
Startup Tickets: We offer a limited number of tickets at a discounted rate for startups (companies that are less than three years old, with 20 or fewer employees). If you would like to apply for a startup ticket, please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Following the last presentation, we are pleased to present an exclusive tasting of Kinsella Estates cabernet sauvignon from the winery owned by venture capitalist and presenter Kevin Kinsella of Avalon Ventures. Kinsella Estates has become the top rated cabernet in Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley, with the 2008 and 2009 vintages receiving 95 and 94 point scores from Wine Spectator and The Wine Advocate. Although it is offically sold out, Kevin will pour a few bottles of the ’09 from his private cellar for those who can stay.
