What are the next big ideas in technology, and where are they coming from? How will they rock your world? And how are entrepreneurs and investors building viable businesses around them?
Xconomy has canvassed its national network for the most potentially transformative tech ideas—across mobile, software, hardware, energy, robotics, Internet, and more—and we are inviting a select few companies to Boston for an afternoon of mind-bending presentations and networking. One disruptive company will be on hand from each of Xconomy’s five metro areas—Boston, Detroit, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle—to provide these feature presentations in highly interactive sessions. We are also planning a few bonus appearances and demonstrations. This will be a compelling event for anyone interested in the future of technology, and the companies that will lead the way.
