The Eureka FEST, powered by Microsoft, announces their host and Master of Ceremonies, Ryan Foland, public speaking guru and Co-Founder of InfluenceTree, for the third annual startup celebration conference. As the largest event in Orange County focusing on the future of entrepreneurship and tech startups, Eureka FEST celebrates the growth and successes of Orange County’s booming tech and startup scene on April 8 at the Eureka Building in Irvine.
“Eureka FEST plugs one of the biggest tech communities in Southern California into the biggest event of its kind in Orange County, and to have a host who’s imperative to the Silicon Beach community brings us great value”, said Peter Polydor, Eureka FEST Founder & CEO of ERGO Capital. “Ryan, aka GingerMC, is known for his high energy, humor and ability at keeping audiences excited and engaged, all keys to the success of large events like Eureka FEST.”
Starting with his position running the Blackstone LaunchPad (now known as the ANTrepreneur Center) at the University of California, Irvine, Foland since has been bridging Silicon Beach with the OC startup scene. Bringing students from UCI to Santa Monica startup events, he was successful in connecting early stage entrepreneurs with Silicon Beach. Also, Foland is the co-organizer and host of the fastest growing tech MeetUp in Orange County, boasting over 5,000 active members and monthly gathering of 300+ attendees, OC Tech Happy Hour.
