It’s getting close to the last call for Xconomy’s invitation-only Napa Summit. We have a star-studded lineup. But there are only a few tickets and hotel rooms left, and the May 16-17 event is coming up fast. So request your invitation right away if you’d like to join us.
It all starts with a dinner at Silver Oak on the evening of Monday, May 16, where Xconomy’s founder, Bob Buderi, will be conducting a chat with Facebook’s Mary Lou Jepsen. The main event itself takes place the next morning at the nearby Villagio Inn and Spa.
In addition to Jepsen, this year’s speakers include noted tech investor Esther Dyson; John Maeda of Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield, and Byers; computing guru Danny Hills; John Callaghan of True Ventures, outgoing chair of the National Venture Capital Association; Rachel Horowitz of gene-editing startup Caribou Biosciences; Harry Shum, who heads worldwide research for Microsoft; and Chris Lewicki, CEO of Planetary Resources, the asteroid mining company backed in part by Larry Page. And those are just a few of our speakers. We also have sessions covering the transformation of medicine with Watson Health, virtual reality, the artificial intelligence, and the future of food, among other topics.
Guests will even be able to ride in a 3D printed car, courtesy of Kevin Czinger, a former Webvan executive whose new startup, Divergent 3D, makes the vehicle, called the Blade.
Registration is $1,595, which covers the dinner at Silver Oak, and breakfast, lunch, and reception at the Villagio Inn and Spa—and we are offering discounts for startups and government/non-profits (lodging and travel are separate).
And this year, if time and budget are limited, you can get a Tuesday Only registration for just $995, and for this, too, we have discounts for startups and government/non-profits.
