In my opinion, The Future of Money and Technology Summit is among the most important conferences in America. FOM&T is not the usual parade of polished celebrities selling books, consulting, or seminars. Here you’ll find the people who work deep in the caldron of innovation enterprise bringing together some of the most important ideas in the world today.
The Moment is now
The challenges for the future are immense, the technologies unfolding before us are extraordinary, and the people on the front lines are visionaries. For better or worse, future generations will look back on several key moments that marked the beginning of a new era.
Last year I was deeply humbled by the quantity, quality and razor sharp intellect from the audience and the speaking panels alike. The panels were great, but the audience was just as awesome. Every question asked of the panelists was as profound and inspired as the panelists themselves. One common thread binds this conference like no other that I’ve attended: we’re all in it together. I consider myself privileged to be a participant in this event.
A Portrait of The Future
For me it seemed like 800 pieces to a huge jigsaw puzzle walking around finding their place in a yet unknown portrait of the future. Everyone has part of the answer and nobody has all the answers – this makes for an extraordinary collaborative learning environment and likely the best place to peer deep into the future.
I strongly recommend that anyone who engages in this conversation of the ‘future of money and technology’ in their work, research, blog, or start-up must attend this historic event. This is truly an example that the whole is far greater than the sum of the parts, and there are some great parts!
