RJ Jain, Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Foundation Capital, opened up the sky lounge so attendees could look out on the golden gate bridge and water below.

The event was presented by TriNet with exclusive food and wine pairings from Stags' Leap Winery. For example, the menu included day boat bay scallops with fava bean puree and preserved lemons along with a pleasant Napa Valley Viognier.

During the event, Justin Hart, Vice President at SurfAir, spontaneously gave away two free round-ticket trips on SurfAir. Guests shared their photos of the event on social media in order to enter. Alexis Schlamberg and John Rampton were the lucky winners.

YEC members who spoke at AdTech in San Francisco included Robert Glazer, John Hall, Brian Wong, Erik Huberman and Ryan Stoner. Topics included everything from marketing mistakes to the future of wearable technology.
