Event Details

THEY AIN'T SEXY, BUT THEY....

BRING HOME THE BACON!

August 9th, Mountain View

 

WHY UNSEXY?

Even Silicon Valley, the mecca of innovation, sometimes misses the point. Some of the most successful, forward-thinking companies in today’s technology landscape are incredibly underrated and often overlooked in favor of ‘sexy’ consumer verticals. Yet there are so many superior products, tools, and services that represent the biggest opportunity for the massive SMB and enterprise markets, & the technology ecosystem as a whole. 

Covering verticals such as financial services, communications, email, data, infrastructure and more, unSEXY is a 1-day conference about tech startups and companies who are actually doing something incredibly sexy – they’re building scalable, sustainable businesses.
