I have just come from a few days in San Francisco attending the Innovate Celebrate event hosted by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and TechCo Media. If you haven’t been to this event before, put it on your calendar for next year now. The three day event is packed with enlightened content from visionaries at large companies and the startup community, illuminating what’s going on across the technology spectrum. Allow me to share with you the highlights of the event via a bevy of archived presentations.
(Next week, I’ll cover CTA’s Hot Tech Trends for the Holidays and 5 Technology Trends to Watch.)
First up, the TechCo Startup of the Year!
