Just 10 days to go—but it’s not too late to request your invitation to Xconomy’s most unique and thought-provoking event of the year: our annual Napa Summit: The Xconomy Retreat on Technology, Jobs, and Growth. We only have a few spots left open, so get your wine on and request your invitation today. You will be joining an incredible group of fellow attendees–executives, innovators, investors, technologists, and entrepreneurs.
The event takes place June 14-15 in Yountville, CA. To request your invitation, visit our event site or e-mail us at [email protected] with your name, job title, company, and link to your bio. We offer discounted prices for those at startups and non-profit or government organizations—so ask us about those as well.
And what a program you will experience. You’ll hear firsthand from Nobel Laureate Phil Sharp about the intersection of biology and engineering, and what it means for the future—and from famed roboticist Rodney Brooks about the future of his field. Mary Lou Jepsen will demonstrate her consumer-priced medical imaging technology—with a chicken! Gary Marcus of NYU, former Director of Uber AI Labs, will talk about Why A.I. is Harder Than You Think. And we’ll have sessions covering a wide spectrum of the innovation landscape—including digital therapeutics, quantum computing, virtual reality and augmented reality, autonomy beyond the car, and a lot more. You can find the full agenda here.
The event formally kicks off the evening of Thursday, June 14, with a wine reception and dinner at Brix Restaurant & Gardens in Yountville, CA. But ahead of that, attendees can have their first of several demo experiences throughout the conference. That afternoon, we’ll offer test rides of bicycles equipped with Superpedestrian’s Copenhagen Wheel. You will zip along, combining your own pedal power with an assist from the robotic wheel. Also on hand for a test will be a telepresence robot from OhmniLabs.
The main program takes place the next day, June 15, at the Villagio Inn & Spa. The day will be intimate and interactive, with audience Q&A and more networking time than ever before.
And plan on staying until the end. The program closes with our annual State of Investing chat, this year featuring Mark Gorenberg of Zetta Venture Partners, and Karen Kerr of GE Ventures, with Kate Mitchell from Scale Venture Partners, a former chair of the National Venture Capital Association, serving as moderator. And as soon as that ends, we hit the patio for another tradition—more wine tasting, this year featuring the wines of Banshee Vineyards, itself an innovator in its industry.
