We will be virtually hosting The Montgomery Summit 2021 presented by March Capital on March 3rd & 4th.
Since The Montgomery Summit 2020 last March, we have experienced the rapid acceleration of digital transformation along with a torrent of other changes. In 2021, we will explore all that we learned from the past year; how these changes will determine our new normal; what the implications for technology investing and the innovation economy are; and who the entrepreneurs will be that lead the charge in driving innovation.
The conversation has already begun, and we look forward to continuing the dialogue while learning from the unique perspectives and diverse insights of our keynote speakers. We have confirmed a number of industry leaders including Eric Yuan, CEO & Founder, Zoom; Bill McDermott, President & CEO, ServiceNow; Jennifer Tejada, CEO, PagerDuty; Alex Taylor, CEO & President, Cox Enterprises; Francis DeSouza, President & CEO, Illumina; Cristiano Amon, President & CEO-elect, Qualcomm; Jim Whitehurst, President, IBM; and others.
We have reinvigorated the Summit’s program format and content to create a more engaging experience in the virtual environment. This year, the majority of our presenting companies will be divided by industry sector into sixteen 50-minute blocks. Within each block, 4-5 industry leading companies will give 4-minute presentations followed by a panel discussion with an expert moderator. Our sector overviews will discuss matters of direct and immediate importance to investors, entrepreneurs, and executives, including “Frontiers of Cyber Security,” “Intelligent Automation,” “Cloud Infrastructure,” “Real Time Payments,” “The Re-invention of the Bank,” “Reinventing Supply Chains,” “Optimizing the Data Layer,” “The Future of Food,” and more.
We will also be featuring a select number of “transformative” companies during 25-minute slots where hosts will introduce the companies and moderate a live Q&A from the virtual audience. March Capital companies scheduled to present in this program include ASAPP, Earnin, Forter, SparkCognition, Uniphore, and Unqork. They will be joined by other leading private companies including Freshworks, Qumulo, Rubrik, Snyk, ThoughtSpot.
The 2021 Summit will be virtual for the safety of our Summit community. Though we will miss seeing you all in person, we will do our best to create energy, foster impactful relationships, and deliver the unexpected – as we always do.
For our 18th annual Summit – our first virtual Summit, we have opened our plenary sessions (keynotes, fireside chats, and panels) to a global audience at no cost. Please spread the news of this exciting opportunity to get involved.
