Xconomy Forum: Mobile Madness 2014—The Next Disruptors
Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 1:30 PM (EDT)
Mobile software and hardware have changed the game for many industries. From telecom to photo sharing to hailing a cab, and from traditional retail to health and fitness, online travel, and home automation, apps and devices have opened up worlds of opportunity for entrepreneurs, consumers, and businesses. In short, mobile is taking over. But which companies and investors are now driving innovation in different sectors—and what new industries or fields are ripe for disruption?
Xconomy's spring mobile extravaganza will tackle these issues, and much more. Our sixth annual half-day conference will convene tech innovators and business leaders from New England and beyond, highlighting a unique mix of mobile startups, investors, and users. In a series of interactive talks, chats, and demos, the speakers will share personal stories and mobile strategies from the worlds of advertising, healthcare, finance, retail, telecom, consumer apps, and enterprise software.
