Reflecting on the last five years, I can say that entrepreneurship can be a long and demanding road, and you might develop a love-hate relationship with your tech startup. But for me, at the end of the day, there's no other experience that's more challenging, rewarding and exciting but also gruelling and frustrating all at the same time. One of the key things for me is always keeping an open mind and learning from others outside of the tech/Valley bubble. Ken Fulk is someone that has influenced my thinking on design and fear is the enemy.
Event planner, interior designer, and bon vivant Ken Fulk is a master of maneuvering between the various spheres of San Francisco society, from blue bloods to newly minted Silicon Valley tech titans—and beyond.
He can’t help but grin as he notes that his design studio was formerly a bondage-leather shop or recounts the time a few years ago when he infamously flew in burlesque performer Dita Von Teese to writhe around on a velvet-upholstered mechanical bull at a party for fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Indeed, the charismatic Fulk is known for bringing diverse groups together and making special things happen.
