The annual Nantucket Conference has just announced their agenda for this year. This event, organized by Alyssa Stern and Shayne Gilbert of Future Forward Events, LLC is the East Coast equivalent of D or Web 2.0, bringing together a Who's Who of entrepreneurs, investors, and press from throughout New England. Again this year they've enlisted Scott Kirsner to help with the agenda. Since returning to Boston from Silicon Valley, Scott has become one of the primary boosters of our local high-tech industry and the lineup is a good snapshot of where we've been recently and where we are going, and it includes a few "outsiders" who should bring a much-needed perspective to what can sometimes appear to be a self-contained community.
The conference is May 1-3 on, where else, Nantucket, which by then will have emerged from Winter but not yet be overrun with the Summer's crowds. The event is invitation-only, but don't let that stop you, You can request an invitation here. I would recommend this conference to anyone in New England who is starting or running a high-tech company and wants to network with other people can help.
