Accel Partners is proud to bring you the 17th Stanford-Accel Symposium hosted by MediaX at Stanford University on April 30, 2013. Themed “The Re-Imagining of the Modern Enterprise,” this year’s conference aims to understand the drivers behind today’s enterprise IT renaissance, while uncovering the vast opportunities on the horizon.
In just the past few years, business leaders have awoken to a new era in enterprise technology: today’s cloud-enabled, hyper-connected knowledge workers demand functional, accessible and social tools, and are increasingly voicing strong opinions over their technology choices. As such, every category of technology has come up for grabs. Whether collaboration, productivity or security – ERP, CRM, HCM or ITSM – all classes of applications are being re-architected and re-imagined for the kind of discoverability, deliverability, and usability required of today’s employee.
And the opportunity for startups has never been greater. Entrepreneurs in all sectors are driving meaningful, grassroots business value while unlocking vast pools of economic value long guarded by IT incumbents. Through a series of keynotes, panels and fireside chats, the Stanford – Accel Symposium brings together many of our industry’s leading thought leaders to discuss these themes and more. In addition to examining the success models of many of today’s most disruptive companies, this year’s event aims to uncover the new and emerging ideas that will continue to drive this IT renaissance for years to come. We hope you join us for what promises to be an enriching and thought-provoking event.
