An annual conference by TiE Silicon Valley is a focal point each year for technology entrepreneurs to gather around the latest in the fast-moving tech industry. This year’s conference will offer tracks in the following trending technologies: AR/VR, autonomous vehicles, digital health, drones, govtech, Internet of Things (IoT), fintech/blockchain, gaming, machine learning, martech, security, and software-defined infra. There will also be tracks for entrepreneurship and social impact as well as a track for youth.  

There will also be opportunities to get mentored through a brand-new program called Words of Wisdom, go through an intensive day-long workshop by registering for the Startup Bootcamp, learn about or showcase innovative companies at the Startup Expo, or participate in the TiE50 annual startup awards program.

TiE Silicon Valley’s mission is to foster entrepreneurship, and TiEcon is its biggest event of the year, serving as an ultra-manifestation of that mission. 4600+ entrepreneurs have attended each year in recent years, and speakers have included the likes of Elon Musk, Satya Nadella, Meg Whitman, Shantanu Narayen, Larry Page, Marissa Mayer, Vinod Khosla, Jack Welch, Jeff Weiner, Amitabh Kant, Reid Hoffman, Bonny Simi, and many more powerful and influential tech figures. It has also been listed as one of the top 10 conferences for ideas and entrepreneurship alongside TED, DEMO, and World Economic Forum.

Like every year, TiEcon will bring together some of the greatest minds in technology — C-level execs, entrepreneurs, VCs, government officials, and more — under one roof. And this year, it’s a particularly special event as TiE Silicon Valley celebrates its silver jubilee, marking 25 years of entrepreneurial success.

May 5-6, Santa Clara Convention Center, 5001 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara.
