Program Overview https://techonomy.com/conf/nyc18/program/
To thrive in today’s fast-moving and confusing world, leaders need to be
able to connect the dots between seemingly unrelated events, technological
advancements, and policy changes coming from all over the world. In many
ways tech is altering how systems work, how industries compete, and how we
ourselves think and act.
At TechonomyNYC, May 8-9, we bring the pieces together by convening a
diverse group of experts-practitioners of innovation, business leaders who
are open about their challenges, policy experts who go out on a limb, and
plenty of young entrepreneurs.
Our aim is to facilitate a cross-fertilization of ideas that produce ‘A-ha
