Every year the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) takes place in Las Vegas to exhibit the latest technology innovations and services. This year's expo had 3,600 presenters featuring everything from transparent TV technology to drones that won't crash to robots that measure how well you brush your teeth.
YEC member companies also had booths, including Durga Pandey, founder and CEO of 12 Labs; Jerry Wilmink CEO and founder of WiseWear; and Evan Foo, CEO of Archt Audio. Additionally, member Andrew Thomas, co-Founder of SkyBell, hosted a hospitality suite for SkyBell partners and customers, and Lisa Song Sutton, co-owner of Sin City Cupcakes, had the cameramen from her business-driven TV show with Cox Communications present in order to interview some YEC members.
A few highlights of CES: YEC member Dylan Purcell Lowe and his team were awarded the innovation award for their Somabar Robotic Bartender, and YEC member company WiseWear was picked up in the Today Show for "some of the coolest CES tech and gadgets." You can watch the video, here.
Our invite-only YEC event during the weekend saw 60 members from across the country on the 104th floor of the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino for chatting, chowing gourmet appetizers, sipping cocktails, and of course enjoying access to the famous rides at the "Top of the World" tower.
Some of the YEC Members in attendance included: Shama Hyder, founder and CEO of Marketing Zen; Eric Corl, co-founder of Fundable; Patrick Henshaw, co-founder of Strap; Rakia Reynolds, president of Skai Blue Media; John Hall, CEO of Influence and Co.; Adam Grant, founder and CEO of Campus Cammandos; Alex Friedman, co-founder and president of Ruckus; and Blake Miller, partner of Think Big Partners.
