Countdown to the Rock Stars of Innovation Summit: Whats Going On

Xconomy San Diego — 

We’re just a few days away from “The Rock Stars of Innovation Summit,” which is bringing together San Diego’s best and brightest innovation leaders to talk about the ideas spinning out of our local clusters in the life sciences, wireless technologies, and active lifestyle industries.

The show begins at 8 a.m. this Friday, April 4, at the Andaz Hotel in downtown San Diego. Once the curtain goes up, it isn’t coming down again until 3 p.m., so you might want to bring your dancing shoes. You can find the agenda and other information online here.

Connect has organized the Summit (with help from Xconomy), and CEO Greg McKee will be stepping on stage as impresario for the first time since he was named to lead the San Diego nonprofit group just over a month ago. I’ll be joining Greg on stage, but standing 20 Feet from Stardom—just like a backup singer at any other event where the rock stars come out.

As in the past, this year’s Summit will be preceded by a jam session and networking reception on the preceding evening—Thursday, April 3—at the San Diego House of Blues. Our headliner for the evening is the Left4Dead band.

Tickets are still available, and the networking reception and jam session are included as part of the Rock Stars of Innovation Summit. You can find more information and register online here, but the window for online registration will close Wednesday at 3 p.m.

After that, you can still register at the door for either or both events. But hurry, because we’re pickin’ up good vibrations. Good, good, good, good vibrations.
