Meet with CEOs, founders and product/engineering leaders from our community of clients, partners and friends.
Rob Bailey is the CEO & founder of BackboneAI, an intercompany data automation platform.
Previously, Rob was the first COO of Kustomer (acquired by Facebook-$1B), a Series E enterprise customer service platform, and CEO of DataSift, a Human Data Intelligence platform acquired by Meltwater.
A serial entrepreneur, Rob has scaled five companies that have collectively raised $300M+ in venture funding and has worked with founders of nearly 20 other companies that have collectively raised more than $500 million.
Tessa Velazquez is co-owner of D.C.’s Baked&Wired, A Baked Joint, and la Betty.
Tessa believes that the best moments are created around food. In Spanish culture, this is called “Sobremesa” – that magical time at the dinner table after a big meal where the inside jokes are formed, the deep conversation occurs, and the real human connection begins. Tessa cooks to make those moments happen.
Tessa’s cooking philosophy is to use organic, seasonal, whole ingredients to make homey, filling and fresh meals with an exciting twist.
The attire is relaxed and informal. If you’re a vegetarian or have other dietary needs or restrictions, please let us know.
