You want robots? We got robots. You want cybersecurity? We got cybersecurity. Healthcare and biotech? Yup, got those too, along with a healthy dose of marketing tech, big data analytics, entrepreneurship education, venture capital, and a few other pillars of the New England innovation ecosystem.
It’s all coming to you on June 17 at Babson College: this is the site of Boston 2035, Xconomy’s biggest local event of the year. The goal is to look out 20 years and talk about what will make or break Boston as an innovation city of the future—that means looking across tech, life sciences, and other sectors to figure out how to solve some really big problems in areas like infrastructure, health, and education.
You can check out the full agenda here. (A few pieces of the program are still pending).
One key theme is people and relationship-building. That will certainly be felt with folks like Desh Deshpande, Bill Sahlman, Diane Hessan, Robin Chase, and David Cohen in the house—just to name a few.
In terms of companies represented, we’ve got the whole spectrum covered from Actifio to Zipcar. We’ve got the CEOs of Acquia, Boston Children’s Hospital, Jibo, Localytics, Moderna, Neumitra, Startup Institute, Tamr, Techstars, and Veracode. It’s a potent lineup. But our audience is just as important—we need you to bring your ideas, questions, and challenges to make the day a complete success.
We just did a sister event in Texas last week (Houston 2035—check out the pictures), as part of our Xponential Cities series. I’m convinced Boston will rise to match the level of excitement we had in Houston. Boston always rises.
There are still some tickets left, so grab yours while special rates still apply. See you all on June 17.
