Good morning from Santa Monica, where it’s currently very wet. We hope to get all the rain out of the way before the Summit so you can enjoy our standard 70-degree and sunny weather on March 5th and 6th.
We have been busy assembling a rich and well-integrated program. At The Montgomery Summit presented by March Capital, you will have the choice of many sessions, including 30+ panel discussions, 20 exclusive interviews & fireside chats, and 80 presentations from private tech company CEOs.
As we gear up to publish the agenda next week for the 21st annual Summit, here’s a close-up look at some of the sessions that we have curated.
