Digerati.org to Hold The Digital Transformation Summit in Minneapolis

PR Newswire

MINNEAPOLIS, July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Digerati.org Announces the first Digital Transformation Summit, in Minneapolis on July 25th. Digerati.org is a national platform connecting digital leaders with networking and education opportunities. The Digital Transformation Summit event is focused on digital strategy, and emerging technologies for Chief Executive Officers, Chief Digital Officers, and business leaders. In a world where software is increasingly transforming the core of every industry, hard-fought lessons from the digital practitioners delivering radical transformation are indispensable to senior management at all organizations.

The event is curated and invite-only, and includes panels by some of the leading companies in Minneapolis.

The event is supported by Ryan Weber, co-founder of Great North Labs, a local early-stage venture fund that invests in upper Midwest technology startups. Ryan previously co-founded NativeX, a Minnesota-based ad technology and media company. 

"The Digital Transformation Summit will feature an amazing lineup of local digital transformation leaders who are building forward-looking, digitally-driven enterprises," said Ryan Weber, speaking to the press.

Among the list of leaders speaking at the event are Mark Ritchie and Gene Munster. Ritchie is a politician and entrepreneur who served as Minnesota's 21st Secretary of State. Munster is a former analyst for Piper Jaffray, and currently heads Loup Ventures.

Bharath Lingam, CEO of [x]cube LABS, a leading digital transformation company and host of the event, said: "Digital transformation today is a highly visible and yet very misunderstood topic. The best way for enterprises to engage with the subject is to have 'birds of the same feather' communities, where digital practitioners can meet with each other, share lessons from the trenches on how they're solving their challenges and learn from each other. The Digital Transformation Summit is designed to accomplish exactly that."

The Digital Transformation Summit is designed to provide a great opportunity for digital leaders to network with their peers and learn from the best practitioners of the trade.

The event will also host access to a digital innovation experience area where delegates will get hands-on time with emerging technologies such as deep learning, virtual reality, Internet of Things, and so on.

Brendan Cooper, Head of Digital at Panini and a past Digerati event speaker, said: "The Digerati community is the best and fastest way to meet and learn from people practicing digital transformation. Success on the frontier of business change requires extraordinary insight from people that live on that frontier. This is where you get it."
