What is nestCON? Agenda

What is nestCON? nestCON is the premier Silicon Valley showcase for introducing "best of breed" emerging technology companies. nestCON occurs on a quarterly basis, and each one has a unique, industry-specific focus that informs the conference. The agenda rotates between keynote speeches, panels and pitch sessions. The pitch sessions feature pre-qualified companies presenting in front of venture capital and industry expert panelists, followed by the opportunity for deeper conversation during networking sessions. The keynote speakers, who are industry leaders within their respective fields, provide thought leadership pertaining to the chosen nestCON theme. These conferences bring together Silicon Valley executives, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors and multiple media channels and promote networking in a highly interactive, intimate and relaxed environment. 


About nestGSV

nestGSV sits at the intersection of two Americas -- startup and corporate America. Recognizing that both parties' inventiveness can be expounded through cross-collaboration, nestCON serves as a conduit between corporate and startup entities, enabling the exchange of ideas and connecting instigators.
