Exponential Thinking & Exponential Technologies

Hosted By ValueScaler


Mind-blowing companies are changing every aspect of life, from AI to Robotics to 3D printing.
Companies not creating or leveraging exponential technologies are going to fall behind to the point of no recovery. Companies like Blockbuster and the entire taxi industry once dominated their industry only to find themselves at the bottom of the food chain or gone now.

As an expert in the latest cutting-edge exponential technologies – many of them being startups – and many of those operating in stealth mode, George Bandarian helps companies learn and adopt new exponential technologies to gain the competitive advantage and beat competitors.

Exponential technologies include the following, and results are maximized when multiple are combined together:
• Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing (NLP) and Data Science
• Internet of Things (Iot), sensors, networks and advanced computing systems
• Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR, VR)
• 3D Printing, Nanotech, and Digital Fabrication
• Robotics and Autonomous vehicles
• Digital Biology and Biotech
• Blockchain, Cryptocurrency

Just as important as the technologies, we also teach the fundamentals of:
• Exponential Thinking & Abundance Mindset
• How to Create Your MTP (Massively Transformative Purpose) & Moonshots
• The Law of Accelerating Returns
• 6 D's of Exponential Growth

Running Lean

Hosted by ValueScale

We live in an age of unparalleled opportunity for innovation. We're building more products than ever before, but most of them fail--not because we can't complete what we set out to build, but because we waste time, money, and effort building the wrong product. What we need is a systematic process for quickly vetting product ideas and raising our odds of success. That's the promise of Running Lean.


In this talk, George Bandarian takes you through an exacting strategy (developed by Ash Murya, author of Running Lean and Scaling Lean) for achieving a "product/market fit" for your fledgling venture.
You'll learn how to quickly deconstruct your idea on a 1-page Lean Canvas, identify what's riskiest, and use small and fast experiments to move your idea forward.The first hour will provide an overview of the mindset and methodology, and, in the second hour we will create our Lean Business Model Canvases online.

Free lifetime access to the online lean canvas platform is included for all attendees.
Cost: FREE for Glendale Tech Week attendees ($99 person regularly)

Web Accessibility Seminar for Business Professionals

Hosted by Be Accessible
Speaker: Aaron Farber

Learn Why Accessibility Matters, Web Accessibility Guidelines, and How to Handle ADA Complaints.

We are entering the age of the professional internet. As processes have moved online and people rely more on the web, there are new and higher expectations for online businesses - in accessibility just as with security and privacy. Now, people have always set these expectations, deciding what websites or apps to use and spend their dollars on. But, businesses now operate in an in an environment facing constant threat from a whole class of private lawyers empowered to file complaints and extract settlements. Small businesses are treated as tech companies - that have the technical resources to immediately fix their website, and remove accessibility barriers. Most accessibility barriers are due to early flaws - flaws that could have been prevented by business owners choosing the right website platform for their organization and understanding the diverse ways that people will use their website. The seminar is for business professionals, entrepreneurs, marketers, developers or parties interested in learning about accessibility.
