About the Echo Conference

Inspiring and Equipping Entrepreneurs to Lead.

The Echo Conference is a leadership conference for aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley featuring advice from founders, investors, CEOs, and innovators.

This years focus will be on the importance of great culture at the workplace and beyond.

Our goal is to add value to entrepreneurs by providing practical leadership training, but at the same time we want to inspire them to lead bigger, not just better. To consider their larger contribution to society and the potential of leveraging their influence, affluence, and even their products to the betterment of the world.

ECHO is unique among tech conferences in the Valley. Instead of just talking fundraising, pitching, or the X’s and O’s of running a company, we focus on something more fundamental: Leadership. As our leadership grows, so do our businesses, initiatives, and ability to make a difference in the lives of people.
