We networked till we dropped on Monday night at the Jaguar dealership where guests met one another, mingled and anticipated Kevin Harrington’s presentation. Attendees wandered about the BMC showroom tasting Los Osuna tequila, observing works being painted live by artists Leonardo Ibarra and Carla Avruch, pausing for a photo inside the Photo-matica booth, sipping cold Zico, and indulging in the beauty of Garden Creamery desserts.

Brian Banmiller kicked the night off with sponsor introductions before Kevin Harrington took the stage and talked about the current product market and shared tips about how to launch your product idea into a million-dollar market. Guests got the opportunity to ask the “shark” their burning questions in an intimate fireside Q&A session, and by the end of the program some even got the moment to quickly chat with Kevin about their idea.

In the end the energy was high and so was the excitement, especially when we announced the winner of our private champagne flight for two around the Bay courtesy of Visionary Air. We’d like to congratulate EFactor member Anthony Gonzalez of Synergy Corporate Housing.

“I had a great time listening to Kevin Harrington talk about his experience with product ideas. It motivates me to revisit some of the product ideas I’ve had. It was also fun hanging with the EFactor team.” --Anthony Gonzalez
