On behalf of the students, faculty and administration of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2013 Kellogg Technology Conference.
Now in its 19th year, the Kellogg Technology Conference brings together entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, designers and other thought leaders to discuss how today’s companies can both compete in and define tomorrow’s economy through technology. This year’s conference, The Business of Breakthroughs, will explore how both startups and industry giants are creating new markets, driving trends and changing the game. We are pleased to convene dynamic discussions on the impact of technological innovation on the global marketplace.
I extend a special welcome to our panelists and participants, especially our keynote speakers: Padma Warrior, chief technology and strategy officer of Cisco; and Duncan Logan, chief executive officer of Rocketspace. I am sure you will find the perspectives of these industry leaders to be inspiring.
Enjoy the day.
