Acquia, Actifio, Startup Institute Join Boston 2035 Lineup on June 17

Xconomy Boston — 

‘Tis high season for tech and innovation events in New England. Just this week we have the NEVYs, the MITX Awards, and Tech State House Day.

Now let’s talk about next month—and the next 20 years.

On June 17, Xconomy is organizing a full-day conference at Babson College called Boston 2035. The big theme is to look out 20 years into the future and talk about what our region needs to do to sustain and grow its innovation cluster—in major sectors like technology, infrastructure, healthcare, and venture capital. It’s all part of our Xponential Cities event series, where we are collecting critical insights from around the country on the challenges of building innovation hubs.

We’re pleased to announce some big new speakers to the program:

Diane Hessan, CEO of Startup Institute and Chairman of Communispace

Raj Aggarwal, CEO of Localytics

Tom Erickson, CEO of Acquia

Robert Goldberg, CEO of Neumitra

C.A. Webb, Executive Director of the New England Venture Capital Association

Mike Troiano, CMO of Actifio

Kara Miller, Host of “Innovation Hub,” WGBH

These folks represent a big slice of the future of Boston-area innovation. They span the critical areas of education, finance, Internet, marketing, media, enterprise IT, and healthtech. And they join our all-star lineup of speakers, which includes Desh Deshpande, David Cohen, Robin Chase, William Sahlman, Stéphane Bancel, Andy Palmer, Jodi Goldstein, Michael Greeley, Bruce Booth, and many more.

We will have the full agenda soon, so stay tuned. Tickets are going fast, but you can still register here. (Check out our special rates for students and startups.) See you all on June 17.
