Walter Cruttenden

Ancient History - Modern Investing

Walter Cruttenden’s Inside Edge  presentation will take an incisive look at pre-Dark-Age cultures, their inventions and lost wisdom. He will specifically examine ancient knowledge of cycles and, using examples, how they predicted the current era.
Surprisingly, the talk will end with how we can use this insight to select winning trends in technology and private and public markets today.
Cruttenden directs the Binary Research Institute in Newport Beach, which researches the cause and consequences of solar system motion. As part of this cosmological work, Walter authored the book Lost Star of Myth and Time and wrote the award-winning documentary film, The Great Year (narrated by James Earl Jones) as well as the children’s book The Great Year Adventures with Tommy the Time-Traveling Turtle.
Cruttenden is also co-founder and chairman of Acorns, a micro-investing company with five million customers, CEO and founder of Blast, a gamification company operating at the nexus of the Fintech and Game industries, and chairman of Ant, a company helping people monetize their own data. The common theme is each company helps people generate micro-income.
According to a quote in the online Oxford Dictionary: ‘Gamification is simple common sense - why not apply decades of games industry design and experience to non-game businesses and software in order to attract users?

In his early career, Cruttenden founded and served as CEO of Roth Capital, a leader in funding emerging growth companies since 1983, and E*Offering, formerly the iBank arm of E*Trade Securities.

As CEO, Cruttenden led both companies through rapid growth and significant liquidity events. After acquiring the acoustic technology from Hughes, he also co-founded SRS Laboratories (since acquired by DTS) and developed it into an independent company.

Erika M. Elliott, MD

Medicine and Miracles in the High Desert—A Healing Story for Our Times

After her first week teaching at a boarding school on the Navajo Reservation near Canyon de Chelly, young Erica Elliott almost leaves in despair, unable to communicate with the children or understand cultural cues. But once she starts learning the Navajo language, the people begin to trust her, taking her into their homes and ceremonies. As she is drawn deeper into Navajo life, Erica has a series of profound experiences with the people, animals, and spirits of Canyon de Chelly. Fulfilling a Navajo grandmother’s prophecy, she returns years later as a medical doctor to offer her services to Navajo patients.

Erica Elliott is a medical doctor with a busy private practice in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A true adventurer, she has lived and worked around the world. She taught rock climbing and mountaineering for Outward Bound and led an all-women’s expedition to the top of Denali in Alaska. In 1993, Erica helped found The Commons, a cohousing community in Santa Fe. She raised her son Barrett in this safe and happy environment. Known as the “Health Detective,” she treats mysterious and difficult-to-diagnose illnesses at her clinic within The Commons.

“What a wonderful book! Elliott’s voice mesmerized me. . . . Such an inspiring, life-affirming, yet tough tale, woven through with a strong drive to realize one’s life path. . .” 

-Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones and Let the Whole Thundering World Come Home
