Disruptors 2016

Disruptors 2016 Logo

Texas has long drawn innovators to call it home. Building on the region's strong foundations in energy, financial services, and medicine, today’s innovators are leveraging technology to change the way we live our lives. These entrepreneurs seek energy deep below the ground or beyond the ocean floor, broaden our knowledge of the human body and the best ways to treat it, develop software that can mimic the human brain, and explore previously unknown frontiers of space. Join us for Disruptors, a unique event that will gather the most forward-thinking leaders, founders, and investors in biotech, energy, space, and technology. #txdisrupt

Disruptors will feature their candid stories about the opportunities and challenges innovators face, strategies for building innovative companies, and cutting edge methods for bringing cool ideas to market.
