Ex-NSA chief Mike Rogers and Team8 founder Nadav Zafrir will be at Disrupt SF – gpgmail


What happens when two former spies meet the startup world? We’re about to find out.

We’re pleased to announce former National Security Agency director Adm. Mike Rogers will be at Disrupt SF on October 2-4. The former U.S. intelligence head oversaw the shadowy agency during one of its most tumultuous times in its history in the aftermath of the massive leak of classified documents by whistleblower Edward Snowden. He also oversaw the Pentagon’s cyberwar-fighting division, U.S. Cyber Command, amid Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election.

Since leaving the world of intelligence, Rogers became a senior advisor at Team8, a leading cybersecurity think tank and company creation platform, which helps to build cybersecurity companies from the ground up.

We’re also thrilled to announce Team8 founder Nadav Zafrir will join Rogers onstage at Disrupt, where both will discuss what they can bring to the world of security startups from their extensive intelligence and cybersecurity backgrounds.

Zafrir served as the commander of the elite technology and intelligence division Unit 8200, Israel’s equivalent of the NSA. Since leaving the unit, Zafrir founded Team8 to help cybersecurity companies go from idea to execution.

Team8 recently opened a New York headquarters, with Rogers serving as a key part of the U.S. expansion. To date, the think tank has enlisted several major investors, including Microsoft, Walmart and SoftBank.

Rogers and Zafrir will discuss what they learned from their time working in the intelligence space and what they bring to the startup world, and they’ll look ahead at the cybersecurity landscape and discuss what comes next.

Disrupt SF runs October 2 – October 4 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Tickets are available here!

Apply to the All Raise AMA to win a free Expo Pass to Disrupt SF – gpgmail


Shouting out to all the fierce female founders. Have you applied to participate in the All Raise “ask me anything” (AMA) sessions at Disrupt SF 2019? No? Women, it’s time to act. Apply for an AMA session by the August 30 deadline and you could win a free Expo Only Pass.

You heard that right. We have 30 free Expo Only passes, and we’ll give them away at random to women founders who get accepted to the All Raise program at Disrupt SF 2019.

All Raise, a startup nonprofit committed to accelerating female founder success, will host a day-long AMA event in a dedicated area in Startup Alley (aka the Disrupt expo floor). They’ll schedule a series of 30-minute sessions throughout the day for roughly 100 women founders.

Each session consists of three founders and one of the All Raise community’s leading VCs. You’ll have the opportunity to ask in-depth questions about the next raise, key hires, the competition or any other business issues that keep you up at night. You can learn plenty from experienced, successful investors like these:

  • Dayna Grayson, NEA
  • Susan Lyne, BBG
  • Shauntel Garvey, Reach Capital
  • Eurie Kim, Forerunner
  • Jess Lee, Sequoia
  • Kara Nortman, Upfront
  • Sara Guo, Greylock,
  • Anarghya Vardhana, Maveron
  • Eva Ho, Fika Ventures
  • Sarah Smith, Bain Capital Ventures
  • Jess Lin, Work-Bench

If you’re a U.S.-based woman founder — and you’ve raised at least $250,000 in a seed, A or B round — you can apply for an AMA session. All Raise gives special consideration to founders from underrepresented groups (e.g. Black, Latinx or LGBTQIA women).

All Raise will review the applications and notify the founders. Acceptance is based on availability for session spots, investor fit with industry sector and company stage, as well as demand for certain categories.

If All Raise selects you to participate — and you don’t happen to win a free Expo Only pass — simply buy any pass to Disrupt SF (including Expo Only). All Raise will send an email to let you know what time they’ve scheduled your session.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to get answers and advice from some of the best investors around. Free admission to Disrupt SF 2019 and free investor advice — that’s a potent combination. Beat the August 30 deadline and apply for an All Raise AMA session today!
