We live in extraordinary times.
The tectonic plates are shifting under established industries at an accelerating rate. Today, the digital infrastructure is in place:
- Over 3 billion people on the internet
- Over 2.6 billion smartphones in the hands of Digital Natives
- 226 billion apps having been downloaded from Apple and Google
These dynamics have paved the way for disruptive businesses to launch at lightening speeds.
Companies like Lyft, which is upending the transportation industry, and Airbnb, which is redefining the hotel industry, have gone from idea to “Billion Dollar Baby” seemingly overnight.
That’s why at the GSV Pioneer Summit, we are passionate about identifying the next generation of transformative companies. At the Pioneer Summit, we will hear from the CEOs of some of the leading private companies in the world including Ron Johnson, CEO of Enjoy; Rajaie Batniji, co-founder of Collective Health, Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan, CEO of Drawbridge, Emerson Spartz, CEO of Dose, Ljuba Milijkovic, co-founder of Automatic and over 100 startups poised to shape the future.
These new fundamentals have increasingly created a “winner take all economy.” With technology in general, and the internet specifically, disproportionate gains typically accrue to the leader in a category.
- What technologies are going to change the way we live?
- Who are the people that will transform industry and society?
- How can I participate in this future?
We will be discussing all this and more at the 2016 GSV Pioneer Summit. We hosted a sell-out crowd last year and expect an even bigger community this year. Get your ticket today and secure your place to see the future.
