What are the most powerful ideas in technology, and where are they arising from? How are entrepreneurs and investors building viable, scalable businesses around them? And how will it all affect your life? Xconomy has canvassed its national network for the most original, sensational, and transformative tech ideas out there—across software, hardware, Internet, digital media, social technologies, and robotics—and we are inviting a select few speakers to Boston for an afternoon of mind-bending presentations and business-building networking.
For the second straight year, one potentially disruptive company will be on hand from each of Xconomy’s cities—Boston, New York, Detroit, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle—to provide these feature presentations in highly interactive sessions. We are also cooking up a few bonus appearances and special talks. This will be a compelling event for anyone interested in the future of technology, and the people and companies leading the way.
