Come kick off the new year with a celebration of disruptive enterprise technology featuring two huge geek heroes: Steve Wozniak and Leonard Nimoy.
The VentureBeat team, being the huge geeks that we are, are delighted to be co-hosting Enterprise Disruption: An Evening of Change and Innovation tonight in San Francisco. The event, produced by our partners at DEMO and underwritten by Fusion-io, will showcase some truly bright student-led startups.
While the event is at capacity, you can still register to get on the waitlist — or follow along with our live video stream, which will start tonight at 6:15pm Pacific, right here in this post.
Everyone loves a great consumer solution, but enterprise companies are starting to stir up conversation. Social business software company Jive, for example, went public in December, hitting a 30 percent high on its first day of trading. Other companies such as Box and Salesforce have become enterprise household names. So, we’ve decided to take a closer look at what makes the enterprise tick, and how we can create technology to make it better. (Click the image to the left to see the full agenda.)
Tonight’s event features a panel of people on the enterprise front lines. This includes DEMO sages Peter Wagner of Accel Partners, Chris Shaepe of Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Dr. Forest Baskett of New Enterprise Associates. The Fusion-io team — comprised of Steve Wozniak, David Flynn and Rick White — will also do a question and answer session.
We’ll look at innovations happening right now through student-led company demonstrations. The evening finishes with a session led by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy, and is followed by a night of celebration for the new year.
The event kicks off at 5:30, so if you can’t make it to the Temple Nightclub tonight, watch our live stream below!
