    Join us for Founder Field Day, our signature event for founders, VCs, partners and our community on Monday, May 16! Founder Field Day is a free, invite-only event hosted by Rothenberg Ventures at the iconic AT&T Park.


    Founder Field Day is designed to help frontier tech founders learn from Luminaries, meet VCs, showcase their startups, and have fun in the ballpark. The morning Luminary Sessions are exclusively for founders, and in the afternoon we open up the event to our community.




Opening Ceremony


The day starts with our Founder & CEO Mike Rothenberg kicking off the event.

Guests receive breakfast, sunscreen and a t-shirt to wear for the day.

LUMINARY SESSIONS


We believe founders learn best from other founders. Luminary Sessions are off-the-record conversations with experts about important company-building topics like fundraising, marketing, scaling, recruiting and M&A. Each session is limited to 15 founders.
