XConomy's 5x5 Forum: 5 Great Ideas Across 5 Cities
XConomy is hosting something called the XConomy Forum in Boston on December 8, 2010. The theme? 5 Cities, 5 Big Tech Ideas. Five innovative companies will present from five cities across the U.S., including Boston, Detroit, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle.
What are the next big ideas in technology, and where are they coming from? How will they rock your world? And how are entrepreneurs and investors building viable businesses around them? Xconomy has canvassed its national network for the most potentially transformative tech ideas—across mobile, software, hardware, energy, robotics, Internet, and more—and only a handful disruptive solutions will present at this day-only event.
Fast Company co-founder and author of Mavericks at Work Bill Taylor will kick things off and featured 5x5 presenters include:
Kiva Systems, Boston—warehouse robots for retail, distribution, and manufacturing applications
On-Ramp Wireless, San Diego—wireless monitoring and data tracking for the electric grid (World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer)
TerraPower, Seattle—nuclear power startup backed by Bill Gates, Nathan Myhrvold, and Vinod Khosla
Arbor Networks, Detroit—mobile and Internet security firm recently acquired by Danaher
CarWoo, San Francisco—online car-buying startup out of Y Combinator incubator
