Thanks to our 2021 Acronis #CyberFit Summit partners

Best MSP event ever!
I was honored to be asked to be a keynote speaker at Acronis Cyber Summit 2021. As a tenured Acronis MSP, UbiStor has always enjoyed their events, but 2021’s Cyber Summit was exceptional. Acronis provided ample opportunity to network with other MSP’s and executives went out of their way to make time to strategize with us. After just a few days, we feel more excited than ever to bring Acronis to our customers.
Dan Hill
CEO of UbiStor, Inc.
Very beneficial meetings
The event was wonderful. I felt like everything was organized very well. The meetings I had were very beneficial and I felt informed. Thank you for everything you do and I look forward to next year.
Brian Kane
Senior Director of Technology, NerdsToGo
Don’t change a thing!
It was a GREAT event. Honestly, I was quite impressed with everything. You and team took great care of me, and I greatly appreciate it. The venue was amazing. Please keep it there! Food, drink, etc. All great. Don’t change a thing.

Well-balanced agenda
You folks did a great job of taking care of the media, and I thought the agenda for the event did a nice job of balancing Acronis content with thought leadership.
Rich Freeman
Executive Editor, ChannelPro Network
We look forward to going back next year! 
The Acronis Summit was greatly beneficial for Climb.  We did see lighter (in-person) attendance due to COVID, but the foot traffic coming through the expo was about the same and the quality of conversation was better.  The expo set up was better, the food was great (did anyone try those short ribs?!?!) and the closing reception could not have been more fun.  We look forward to going back next year!  Great job Acronis!
Tim Popovich
Vice President of Sales, North America, Climb Channel Solutions
A well planned and executed event
I would say the whole Acronis team is to be complimented on a well planned and executed event. It was every bit as good as one by the big guys who’ve been doing them for decades.
Phil Goodwin
Research Director, IDC

Alexis Ohanian

Tech founder and venture capitalist Alexis Ohanian embraces disruption, beginning with his Wa­ffle House epiphany that becoming an attorney was not his destiny to co-founding Reddit in his UVA dorm and launching the venture upon graduation. Ultimately selling the iconic company for millions, Ohanian’s entrepreneurial journey is a business school case study and playbook for founders.

Reddit.com has become one of the largest websites in the US. It was initially funded by Y Combinator in 2005 and sold to Conde Nast in 2006. Ohanian returned as executive chairman in 2014 to help lead the turnaround of the now independent company. Without Their Permission, his national bestseller chronicles much of the story.

In 2016 Ohanian left to co-found Initialized Capital—a seed-stage venture fund with over $770M under management and a portfolio with $100B in market value, which invested in companies like Instacart and Coinbase. In addition to starting Reddit.com, he has also been instrumental in other successful online ventures, including HipMunk and BreadPig. He’s invested in and advised over two hundred tech startups and was a partner at Y Combinator.

In June of 2020, in protest and solidarity with the national outcry for social justice, Ohanian stepped down from his seat on Reddit’s Board of Directors and urged his company to seat a Black candidate in his place.

With his passion for inclusion and a fervent commitment to Founders, Ohanian left Initialized Capital to establish the venture firm, Seven Seven Six, which recently closed its first fund with $150M. Focused on people, culture, and community, Seven Seven Six places humanity at its core. The firms’ limited partnership structure has DEI in its design, comprising 50% women and15% Black or indigenous limited partners. The firm offers the Founders in its portfolio an unprecedented Growth and Caregiving Commitment through an additional 2% of investment – set aside and dedicated to the life needs of Founders to encourage a balanced lifestyle including childcare, eldercare, or personal development. The innovation does not stop there. Through an open application process (not traditional for the VC world), Seven Seven Six has designed an Operator in Residence program to deliver optimum value to its Founders through access to cutting edge Operators. A first of its kind, the program promises to infuse VC with even greater diversity.

Ohanian is an advocate for the open internet, STEM education, and paid family leave. He has lobbied on Capitol Hill and penned a New York Times op-ed, Paternity Leave Was Crucial After The Birth of My Child, and Every Father Deserves It. Ohanian launched the Business Dad podcast, where he interviews fellow fathers about what it means to be a dad in today’s world and how they balance their careers and families. He is also the lead founding investor in the LA-based professional women’s soccer team, Angel City Football Club.
