Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It’s the data we submit every day just by using our phones. Our locations, where we shop, which restaurants we prefer, and how often we Instagram are all details that are being collected. Now, innovative entrepreneurs are taking that data – available to any of us – and strategically using it to start multi-million dollar companies. From smart energy use to healthcare, available data can be a minefield of gold. We’re going to show you how it works. Meet the people who've taken the data and turned it into dollars…and learn how you can do it too.
