See You This Afternoon at Mobile Madness New York

12/4/12Follow @curtwoodward

We’re all ready to go for Mobile Madness New York, our big afternoon conference tackling the big trends and smartest ideas in the mobile computing revolution. If you’ve waited to get your tickets, do it now—pre-sales stop at 11 am, after which you’ll have to buy a walk-up ticket at the door.

We’re really excited about bringing this conference to New York, after four smashingly successful years in Boston and our second straight year taking the show on the road to Seattle.

Make sure to head down to the Microsoft Technology Center in Midtown for this event, which features experienced tech investors and innovators, cool new startups, and plenty of networking time. Registration starts at 1 pm, and we’ll have a reception after the program concludes at 5:30 pm.

You’ll hear from Google Ventures’ Rich Miner, the co-founder of Android, and Stamped CEO Robby Stein about the story of their collaboration—which recently led to Stamped being Marissa Mayer’s first acquisition as new CEO of Yahoo. We’ll also chat with Roger Ehrenberg of IA Ventures and PlaceIQ CEO and co-founder Duncan McCall about their lessons from working with the ever-expanding trove of location data available in the smartphone era.

We’ll also hear a special mini-keynote talk from Rahul Sood, a partner at Microsoft’s new Bing Fund and a veteran of the PC and gaming worlds. After selling his company to HP, Sood joined Microsoft, where he’s now guiding a new early stage investment vehicle and accelerator program from the computing giant’s Seattle-area headquarters.

Our panels promise to be conversational, fast-paced, and smart—we’ve got a great collection of folks talking about how mobile affects publishing, the enterprise, and commerce. And we’ll also hear from some entrepreneurs in short, five-minute “burst” presentations about a sharp idea or hot trend they see shaping things in mobile.

You can get the full agenda and rundown here, and make sure to buy your tickets now for the best possible price—but you have to act before 11 am. Also make sure to grab our special rates if you’re a startup employee or a student. We’ll see you there.
