Jim Estill started a business from the trunk of his car. He grew it to $350,000,000 in sales and then ran the company that bought it from $800,000,000 to $2 Billion. While running his business he saw a lot of new technologies and became an active angel investor, advisor, mentor and board member. His most famous company was Blackberry where he was on the board from 1997 (before they were public) to 2010.

Jim turned his angel investing into his current avocation. He is a VC (Canrock Ventures) and also runs an incubator in Hicksville for start up companies. He will speak about his marketing book “Zero to $2 Billion — The Marketing and Branding Story Behind the Growth.”
