REGISTER at vlab.org The internet, and social media, create a mountain of random, unstructured, and at times ephemeral data by-products, which may appear to be trash. Yet, one person's trash is another's treasure. Come meet the savvy entrepreneurs who are building companies that mine this mountain of digital waste and turn it into gold. With every Internet exchange, traces of information, or Data Exhaust, are left behind. When correlated or combined, these snippets can provide insight into political views, purchasing behaviors, and demographic information—pinpointing trend setters and leading indicators. Brilliant innovators now re-purpose this data stream, aggregating and analyzing the data to provide new products or services. This event brings together experts, entrepreneurs and investors to explore the business opportunities arising from the innovative ways Data Exhaust is being harnessed. 6:00pm - 7:00pm - Networking and Refreshment 7:00pm - 8:30pm - Panel Discussion and Q/A $30 Early Bird Registration by January 11 $35 Pre-Registration by January 18 $40 At the Door
