Big Data has exploded and engulfed us all and has led to a technology and business revolution. Every website, email, SMS text, mouse click, download, and Internet of Things (IoT), sensor input now predicts epidemics, calculates risk, understands consumer behavior and formulates public policies. Entrepreneurs are pursuing these Big Data opportunities in what is becoming the 21st century equivalent of the gold rush.

Our speakers will share their views on the opportunities and challenges entrepreneurs face in building these new ventures, and give a clearer view of what's coming our way.
