XSITE 2009

The Xconomy Summit on Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship

High-tech, life-sciences, and energy innovation may well hold the key to the nation’s economic health and long-term competitiveness. And as a hotbed of American innovation, New England is poised to become a key driver of economic recovery in the U.S.

This full-day conference will celebrate New England innovation and showcase the panorama of transformative efforts underway in the region in such fields as energy, life sciences, robotics, cloud and mobile computing, and transportation—at universities, startups, and large corporations. At the same time, we plan to challenge New England’s innovators to step up and take an even larger role in embracing and shaping the future.
