And on top of that, we will dazzle you with having Mitch Lowe (previous co-founder of Netflix and Redbox) as our keynote speaker plus live Q&A.  He'll share his thoughts on how to start a successful start up based upon his experiences at Netflix and Redbox.

This is not a night to miss out. So even though we will be announcing further details as they develop, we want you to get the date in your calendar and RSVP!
