This year, we’re bringing our annual conference to the picturesque hills of Napa Valley, and entrepreneur, best-selling author and star of ABC’s Shark Tank, Daymond John is coming with us! Join us for an unforgettable 3-day conference filled with illuminating talks from world-class speakers including a keynote fireside chat from Daymond where he will discuss his latest book, Rise And Grind, and explore how grit, persistence, and good old-fashioned hard work are the backbone of every successful business and individual.
You don’t want to miss what is sure to be an illuminating and insightful talk from one of the worlds foremost entrepreneurial experts. Daymond knows what it means to push yourself hard. And he also knows how well a killer work ethic can pay off. As a young man, he founded a modest line of clothing on a $40 budget by hand-sewing hats between his shifts at Red Lobster. Today, his brand FUBU has over $6 billion in sales. In 2015, Daymond was appointed as a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship under the Obama administration, focusing on promoting the importance of entrepreneurship across the globe. He is the recipient of over 35 distinguished awards, including Advertising Age Marketer of the Year, Ernst & Young’s New York Entrepreneur of the Year and the NAACP’s Entrepreneur of the Year.
In addition to learning from our carefully curated group of speakers ready to help you put your dent in the universe, you’ll also benefit from the chance connect with fellow attendees before, during and after these sessions and see for yourself what a inpsiring, dynamic group of driven professionals you will be joining by becoming a Denter.
And, of course, don’t forget about Napa’s legendary food, wine and scenic beauty waiting for you just outside your doorstep. Our planned activity day will give you the opportunity to bond with your fellow Denters, immerse yourself in your surroundings and take advantage of everything our new host location has to offer. Our signature Dine Around night will provide an evening of thought-provoking conversation amongst you and your peers as you strike out in small groups to various restaurants around Napa and indulge in carefully curated cuisine and wine sourced by our resident sommolier, Greg Kizor.
Be sure to secure your invite soon as space is limited and filling up quickly! Once you’ve requested your invite, our team will be in touch with you shortly to complete your registration and confirm your spot in Napa this February. We hope you’ll join us for what we’re sure will be a unique and fascinating conference that will keep you coming back year after year.
Founded in 2012, Dent is a community of entrepreneurs, technologists, executives, investors, and creatives who are driven to “put a dent in the universe.” Initially started as an annual conference, we quickly developed into a strong community of people who call themselves “Denters.” The name Dent comes from the Steve Jobs quote: “we’re here to put a dent in the universe, why else even be here?”
Dent events focus on drawing actionable insights from the stories of others and building an environment where peers from diverse backgrounds and fields of expertise are encouraged to build meaningful relationships through conversation and shared experiences. In addition to our annual conference, now hosted in Yountville, CA, Dent engages with Denters throughout the year and provides opportunities for them to connect with each other and forge relationships that lead to powerful collaborations.
“If you are looking to recharge your creative batteries and drive your ideas forward in a productive way, I highly recommend attending Dent.”
– Alvy Ray Smith, Pixar Co-Founder
“The topics were engaging and the talks were great. I left Dent motivated and informed about things I never would have guessed were so interesting.”
“This is the best conference I’ve ever attended.”
