Keynote presenters include Sprint Corporation President Jan Geldmacher, the former Chief of Strategy for Adobe, Mark Randall and Lenny Mendonca, the Chief Economic and Business Advisor to Governor Gavin Newsom of California.
The keynotes will provide insight into key technology & workforce trends and use their vast experience and anecdotal advice to pull back the curtain on the overall corporate innovation process. The Summit includes event partners and sponsors such as The Kauffman Fellows, E&Y, SMUD, SETA, William Jessup University, Keller Family Foundation, to name a few.
The summit’s unique, open-floor format is purposefully designed to promote engagement and interaction, allowing the audience to attend programs most relevant to them. It features three live stages, three keynote speakers, scores of exhibiting startups, live video interviews, and features Epic Office Hours which is best described as rapid-fire startup pitch sessions between entrepreneurs and investors. Highlighted panel discussions of industry and policy experts will focus on key program tracks including Platforms & Markets; Blockchain & the Data Economy; Women in Tech, Mobility & Infrastructure; Artificial Intelligence & Employment; Data Analytics & Governance and more.
“With tailwinds for innovation in artificial intelligence, robotics, drones, virtual reality, 5G, cybersecurity, and cryptocurrency, this Summit will kick start amazing opportunities to solve global challenges for the next decade with new companies that are launching this year,” said Jack Crawford, General Partner of Impact Venture Capital.
Last year’s summit included more than 1,100 investors, corporate innovators, and entrepreneurs — and this year’s event promises to be bigger and offer more curriculum for attendees.
