Enough with the Silicon

There is more to innovation than a few square miles of California, New York, and Boston. In hundreds of small cities across the country, artists, entrepreneurs, and civic leaders are driving the future of technology and culture. The diversity of their experiences and ambitions will power the next generation of great American invention.

Tom Tom 2018 doubles down on a vision for the future where startups create jobs, technology changes the world, and everyone has a shot.

It’s our time.
Join us!

 

 

The Redesigned Summit 

During the weeklong Founders Festival, Tom Tom convenes two simultaneous conferences, the Founders Summit and the Hometown Summit. The Founders Summit focuses on entrepreneurs and executives. The Hometown Summit connects civic leaders, including government, foundations, academics, and nonprofits.

In the past, the Founders Summit has been a one-day series of keynotes at the Paramount Theater, but in 2018 both Summits will span four days, beginning on the evening of Wednesday, April 11 and continuing through midday Saturday, April 14.
