NEW for 2018: Eight Cutting-Edge Industry Tracks

by: Tom Tom Staff

The Founders Summit and the Hometown Summit will center around eight tracks that explore the future of industry and of cities

 

Over seven years at Tom Tom, we’ve noticed certain ideas keep coming to the surface both by industry and by discipline. Starting in 2018, we are expanding the Summit to include eight tracks that offer extended deep-dives into the biggest problems faced by industry, and offer boutique conversations with national thought-leaders. These eight tracks will range from healthcare, to big data, to renewable energy, and showcase many of the cross-sector technologies and investors driving innovation.

Also new this year is an added focus on the intersection between civic and entrepreneurial innovation. The eight entrepreneur tracks will be complemented by a civic perspective at the Hometown Summit, where the policy and leadership decisions of innovative cities can be discussed. It’s a unique opportunity to engage with leaders in your industry and your peers in others, and meet the civic leaders driving the future of our communities.
