EY Vantage Breakfast 

Nearly 100 Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had the chance to host an EY Fellow or Vantage Fellow since the program started 10 years ago.  But EY hopes this program was only a beginning for them to help entrepreneurs; the firm continues to look for ways to serve our companies.  This breakfast provides an opportunity for Endeavor companies that are "alumni" of the Fellows and Vantage program to reconnect with EY and to share their current challenges.

  • Half Moon Bay Distillery Tour and Tasting

Half Moon Bay Distillery is a small craft distillery, located on the coast of the Pacific Ocean in scenic Half Moon Bay, California. They provide locally produced ultra-premium spirits to people who care about where their drinks come from and who made them. Committed to producing the highest quality, hand-crafted distilled spirits in small batches, owners Ulli and Caesar Bisono believe that the fully automated processes of large liquor conglomerates can never duplicate the heart and soul that goes into spirits which have been produced with the human touch of a master distiller who knows his or her craft. Come with Endeavor on a tour (and tasting!) at the Half Moon Bay Distillery.
