Expanding Networks, Creating Alliances

100% of survey respondents said FiRe met or exceeded their expectations, and 73% made new project and business alliances at FiRe, in a venue that couldn’t be more conducive.


FiRe Global Initiatives

FiRe is the birthplace of programs that long outlive each conference: FiRe Films that make a difference, the AORTA digital education manifesto, a Global Rescue System to reduce human trafficking, and the new medical field of Nutritional Microanalysis, among many others.


World-Class Centerpiece Conversations

With industry luminaries such as Paul Jacobs and Irwin Jacobs, Mark Hurd, Craig Venter, Michael Dell, Colin Angle, Ray Ozzie, and Barry Diller, in PowerPoint-free, “real” conversations. View the discussion with Vint Cerf (pictured).


A Roundtable Experience

FiRe attendees and speakers are called Participants for a reason; many are included onstage, and many more take part in offstage FiRe group discussions leading to new ventures or FiRe Global Initiatives.


Real-Time Problem Solving

FiRe’s annual “CTO Design Challenge” unites engineers to tackle an intractable world problem and present actionable solutions, from fighting urban wildfires to solving global warming to defining and launching the new medical field of “Nutritional Microanalyisis.”


Entrepreneurs Making History

Who comes to FiRe? The CEO of the first private company to successfully launch a rocket into orbital space. FiRe Chair Mark Anderson (L) interviews Elon Musk, SpaceX CEO and 7-time FiRe speaker.
