TiEcon 2014 Releases Full Conference Agenda

The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE), Silicon Valley, announced today its full program schedule for the upcoming TiEcon 2014, the largest entrepreneurship conference in the world. Taking place May 16-17 in the heart of Silicon Valley at the Santa Clara Convention Center, this year’s conference is designed to spark discussion and ideas around the latest industry trends and arm innovators with the tools they need to successfully grow companies in several rapidly-evolving technology sectors.

This year’s grand keynotes include executives who are shaping the future of the technology industry, including Steve Mollenkopf, Qualcomm; Mike Rhodin, IBM; and Vishal Sikka, SAP. Other inspiring keynotes include Shahid Khan, the richest South Asian on the Forbes list of billionaires and owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Romesh Wadhawani, another Forbes billionaire and CEO of Symphony Technology Group.

TiEcon 2014 is broken down into two parts: Day one is divided into three full-day tracks on the fastest-growing sectors of the technology industry, including Big Data, Cloud Infrastructure and the Internet of Things. Each track features its own keynotes, fireside chats and panel discussions consisting of thought leaders, influential executives, VCs, and presentations by the hottest start-ups. The second day introduces two new tracks on disruptions in Healthcare and technology in the oil and gas industry, and brings back popular sessions on TiE Youth, Entrepreneurship and Impact Investing.

“It is for good reason that Worth Magazine ranked TiEcon alongside TED and the World Economic Forum among the top 10 conferences worldwide for ideas and entrepreneurship. This year's agenda lives up to the high expectations that technology professionals in the entrepreneurial ecosystem worldwide have of TiEcon,” said Venktesh Shukla, President of TiE Silicon Valley. “With inspiring stories of highly successful entrepreneurs and keynotes from the movers and shakers of the technology world, as well as presentations from the highest potential start-ups under the TiE 50 awards program, this year's conference may break the record set for attendance and participation achieved last year.”

Winners of the TiE 50 awards will also be announced at the conference. This year’s TiE 50 program reached a new benchmark with entries from over 2,000 companies, and the top 100 of these companies will be presenting their ideas at TiEcon. Of these 100, 50 will be selected as the TiE 50 winners.

TiEcon attendees will have the opportunity to network, browse through the Expo Hall and discover the latest technology, participate in a roundtable discussion with a mentor of their choice at MentorConnect, and meet potential co-founders and domain experts who share a similar vision at FounderConnect. TiEcon 2014 is a unique opportunity for the entire entrepreneurship ecosystem to learn from each other, make valuable connections and participate in wealth creation.
