XSITE 2009: Innovation in New England
XSITE 2009 is a one-day conference that will showcase innovative business in New England. It’s at the Boston University School of Management, 595 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston MA, on Wednesday, June 24, 2009.
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.
There are many presentations by CEO’s of innovative companies, including many startups. There’s a panel session on “Investing in Innovation”. And there’s time for networking: you can chat with and ask questions of the presenters, or just meet the other attendees. Here’s the preliminary agenda.
I’ve been to meetings like this before, and always find them valuable and interesting. The Nantucket Conference is like this, but it’s by invitation only. XSITE is open to anyone.
XSITE is run by Xconomy.com. I attended their one-day conferences on cloud computing and on mobile applications, and both were excellent. So I have high hopes for XSITE as well. (Full disclosure: I am an investor in Xconomy.)
