NewCo Shift Forum — Speaker Spotlight
The Golden State Warriors are a team full of superstars, with some of the best individual talent in the NBA. Much of the Warriors success, though, is due to their relentless focus on putting personal glory aside and working together as a team. Here’s the proof: they have led the NBA in assists the past three years by a significant margin, showing their ability to create opportunities as a team, not just as individual talents. The formula is working — it led the Warriors to a historic 73-win season in 2016, and an NBA championship in 2015.
Steph Curry, as point guard and reigning league MVP, is the chief evangelist of the team-first focus. He’s changing how basketball players are viewed on and off the court, especially given that there’s another side to him that you might not be familiar with: he’s also an avid entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist, and is actively getting involved in the startup world.
Steph Curry, as point guard and reigning league MVP, is the chief evangelist of the team-first focus. He’s changing how basketball players are viewed on and off the court.
He recently co-founded a startup, Slyce, with his college roommate Bryant Barr. Based in San Francisco, Slyce is a social media publishing and tracking platform for brands and influencers. Curry is also an investor in CoachUp, a service that connects ambitious athletes directly with experienced coaches. For the past year, he has been championing the UN’s Nothing But Nets organization, which aims to raise awareness about malaria and help combat the disease.
With that in mind, we’re excited to have Steph join us for an action-oriented dialog on teamwork and business transformation at the NewCo Shift Forum, NewCo’s new executive conference covering “Capitalism at a Crossroads.” Curry isn’t a typical conference speaker. But, then again, the Shift Forum isn’t a typical event. We’re bringing together 400 of the best minds in business, technology, and government to explore a new compact between business and society. We’re now accepting applications for delegates,and we’d love for you to learn more and apply.
Join us for the NewCo Shift Forum, where 400 of the best minds in business, technology, and government will come together for two days of focused, action-oriented dialog.
