The Future of the Connected Enterprise

June 21, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC-7

The world is getting smarter and more connected by the minute—our machines are as responsive to each other as they are to the people who use them, transforming the world around us into a connected, dynamic network of smarter, faster objects. And we’ve only just begun to explore this amazing new realm of connective possibility.

Join us this June to hear from thought leaders and ground-breaking companies on the challenges and opportunities around the connected enterprise. Our speakers will explore key areas around this new economy of connection; we’ll also feature a pitch session with six up-and-coming enterprise startups.
