Twitter, PayPal, Fiksu, & More at Mobile Madness 3/19: Here's the Agenda

3/4/14Follow @gthuang

We are coming down the home stretch in preparation for Mobile Madness 2014: The Next Disruptors.

It’s all happening in two weeks—Wednesday, March 19—at Microsoft NERD in Cambridge, MA. We are getting pumped. The full agenda is here.

There have been some changes to the speaker lineup. In addition to keynote chats with Jason Jacobs, CEO of RunKeeper, and Wayne Chang, general manager of Crashlytics at Twitter (and that’s just a sample), we’ll hear from:

Micah Adler, CEO of Fiksu, and Jon Auerbach, general partner with Charles River Ventures, about the story of Fiksu, one of the fastest-rising startups in the mobile landscape.

Mark Kasdorf, CEO of Intrepid Pursuits and Timbre, on a panel addressing how the Boston mobile scene has matured.

David Chang, COO of PayPal Media Network, who’s organizing a panel of high-school students and young entrepreneurs to tell us about the real future of mobile.

Meredith Flynn-Ripley, CEO of HeyWire, on a panel about disruptive apps and devices. And, oh yeah, that $19 billion WhatsApp deal.

Olivia Dufour, founder of Pink Kiwi, about her recently released app called Lovelines. Think interactive fiction in a text-message interface.

Mark Lowenstein, managing director of Mobile Ecosystem, who’s organizing a fireside chat with Scott Rankin from Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX) and Kristen Ward from Liberty Mutual. The topic is how mobile tech is transforming established industries like payments, commerce, and insurance.

There are still a few tickets left at our special rate (and student and startup rates still apply); you can register here. See you all on March 19.
