Yee will deliver the keynote speech, titled “The State of the State: 2016 California Business and 2017 Business Forecast and Beyond.”
Ruiz is scheduled to share his success story about building the country’s largest Hispanic frozen food manufacturer from his garage in Dinuba.
The event, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 3 at the Clovis Memorial District Auditorium, will offer panel discussions and will be the only place to give growth companies the chance to demonstrate their readiness for private equity investment in ABC’s “Shark Tank”-inspired Valley Entrepreneur Showcase.
