Los Angeles, CA — On January 29-31, 2014 Kai Tao hosted the first-ever DiscoverMe leadership summit in Los Angeles at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. DiscoverMe is an event that features the most prominent leaders in technology, finance, and media discussing the ways content creators and businesses are leveraging the crowd to scale their audiences and grow to the next level.

This invite only event featured a select group of leaders typically invited as speakers at SXSW, CES, and TED events networking and having discussions among a peer group without the distraction of a mass market event.

Discussions focused on next level conversation and in depth experiences for industry specific businesses in regards to technology and media trends. Panel sessions took a look behind the scenes of game changing platforms like AngelList and CrowdTilt who are revolutionizing the traditional funding model.

Venture Capital firms, Family Offices, and Angel Investors from around the country sought out DiscoverMe in Los Angeles as a destination to connect with today’s leading technology platforms and social influencers to get an inside scoop on where the industries are heading and what is coming next.

Kai conceptualized the vision behind the event, as what he calls “the perfect conference experience” among a group of his peers. As a leader in the space, Kai is highly knowledgeable on upcoming trends and able to articulate how to leverage brand equity through technology in the marketplace.

Kai contributed to the chapter on Fundamental Investigative Investing for the book Master Traders, published by John Wiley and edited by Fari Hamzei, and was a featured guest on the PBS show, Wealth and Wisdom.
