Each year, the Nantucket Conference, nantucketconference.com, brings together a small group of creative and forward-thinking entrepreneurs, investors, technologists, and executives. There are several reasons why the Nantucket Conference is a must-attend gathering.
First, there are unique opportunities for exchanging ideas and networking in a relaxing, informal environment. We acknowledge that much of the value of the Nantucket Conference comes from impromptu hallway conversations, serendipitous seatings at lunch, and walks around town. Nantucket is a place for having fun, doing business, and making new connections.
Second, sessions on Nantucket elicit the kind of real-world war stories and insight that you don't hear at any other conference. We limit the use of PowerPoint and forbid blatant company pitches. Also, since there is precisely no difference in the caliber of people on stage and those in the audience, there is always plenty of opportunity at each session for interaction and debate.
Finally, this isn't an event produced by a conference company that churns out dozens of cookie-cutter events each year. Nantucket is organized by a group of people -- our Advisory Board -- who actually work in the technology space every day.
The Nantucket Conference has forged stronger connections between the talented people building technology companies, the people funding those companies, and the people making technology decisions at larger, more established organizations.
