We are now less than a month away from the Mobile Madness Motor City forum, Xconomy’s first mobile event in Detroit. We hope to see you there, and are offering special rates to students and startups designed to fit a range of budgets.

The event takes place on Jan. 17 from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Compuware Building in downtown Detroit, and we’ll have plenty of time during and afterward for networking and discussion. You can get tickets here.

Mobile Madness Motor City has a top-notch lineup of speakers that includes serial entrepreneurs, young founders of hot companies, visionaries, leaders inside global corporations, and investors. Most have roots in Detroit or a strong connection to the city, but we even have a few special guests coming in from around the Xconomy network. Although we’re still finalizing the event program, here’s the list of who’s confirmed so far:

Josh Linkner, CEO and Managing Partner, Detroit Venture Partners
Sheryl Connelly, Manager, Global Trends and Futuring, Ford Motor Company
Paul Czarnik, Chief Technology Officer, Compuware
