DRIVING TRANSFORMATION

Investing in Technology and Human Potential

October 2-3, 2019

Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA

We live in a moment of technological conversion, where every enterprise is engaging with tech in big and small ways. This presents great opportunities and challenges alike in a whorl of transformation, exponentially advancing technologies, rapid adaptation, and broader access and adoption. A record high number of IPOs are coming to market, with iconic companies creating entire new industries. Amid this revolution, other innovators are finding new ways to bring comfort to their customers and improve the touch points in their lives. For investors, the trick is how to get out in front of all this.

 

Industry leaders, partners, clients and friends of Progress Partners and Progress Ventures will gather for Progress Connect 2019 on October 2-3 to put the coming transformation and technological advances into context, and study their implications for investing and society.

Progress Connect is an invite only event.
