Leaders From Top Global Companies, Academia, and Government to Gather at 4th Annual Techonomy Retreat to Explore Tech's Impact on Business
NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 700 national and local leaders from the worlds of technology, business, government and media attended the sold out Techonomy Detroit event in mid-September on the campus of Wayne State University. And in mid-November, Techonomy deepens the dialogue with its fourth annual invite-only Techonomy conference. In Detroit, speakers included Square CEO Jack Dorsey, Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson, Jean Case of the Case Foundation, Andrew Yang of Venture for America, and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. They addressed how technology and innovation can help the US address key challenges including Jobs, Growth, Education, and Urban Revival. A full archive of this event, including video of many of the sessions can be found at http://techonomy.com/conf/13-detroit/
While Techonomy Detroit was a public event focused on issues facing the US, Techonomy 2013 is an invite-only event that takes a more global, intimate, and interactive look at the impact of technology on business and society. More than 250 leaders from numerous industries will convene at the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain Resort near Tucson, Arizona November 11-13 for the event.
"Every day we hear another way that technology transforms the way business is conducted and our lives are lived," said Techonomy founder David Kirkpatrick (who wrote The Facebook Effect). "We want to help business leaders understand and exploit the opportunities inherent in this time of exponential change. Business is the best tool to address social problems, and we want to help it happen."
Confirmed Techonomy 2013 participants include:
The conference this year takes as its theme "The Revolution Business," because every industry is being upended by either smart incumbents or radical insurgents. Stasis is no longer possible as technology has its way with every process, every structure, and every mindset. It's because that is all so unsettling that Techonomy gathers its community together--to help one another figure out how to thrive amidst the change. Sessions will examine the Clash of Generations in the Workplace, The Limits of the Virtual, Urban Evolution or Intelligent Design? Democratization of Luxury, 21st Century Alchemy: Data to Dollars, The Sharing Economy & the Symbiotics of City Life, Crowdsourced, Collaborative and Networked and Power to the Platform.
Additional participants and topics continue to be announced. They can also be found at http://techonomy.com/conf/13-tucson/
Techonomy 2013 sponsors to date include Cisco, EMC, Ericson, Ford, McKinsey & Company, Kaplan, Dell, HermanMiller, Hill + Knowlton Strategies, Mobile Roadie, and 10up.com.
With Technology firmly at the core of all economic and social progress, Techonomy aims to underscore the connection between technology and the economy, and to help business leaders and citizens better understand and harness the far-reaching potential of technology-enabled change. We want to accelerate progress and productivity in companies and in society. Techonomy Media organizes special events like Techonomy Detroit, looking at tech's role in the U.S. economy, as well as the annual Techonomy conference that brings together influential leaders to explore the full range of ways that tech is driving global change in business and society.
