Envision the Future: Today's Approach to Tomorrow's Solutions

As the successor to our Emerging Technologies Conference, the FOLEYTech Summit continues to offer the top-notch industry insight and compelling speakers you have come to expect from Foley & Lardner LLP, while embracing the broader horizons of technology.

This year’s event focused on the issues and challenges facing technology companies today in Health Care, Big Data, and Next-Generation Manufacturing. Featuring highly interactive panel discussions, our three distinct industry tracks engaged and enlightened entrepreneurs, C-level executives, and technology company investors and advisors about trends, opportunities, and financing alternatives in these three hot markets.

  • Health Care IT
    The convergence of an aging population, government incentives, and growing consumerism in health care have created the perfect storm — a diverse and growing ecosystem of payers, providers, and investors seeking technologies that improve care, reduce costs, and enhance the delivery experience in health care. The panel discussed mature and innovative technologies ranging from those focused on clinical and financial applications to those addressing B2C applications, including mHealth and telemedicine.
  • Big Data
    Big Data is creating the next wave of successful technology companies and, just as the amount of data we generate grows, so do the opportunities. The panel discussed what is driving this market, what is making a Big Data company successful, how to commercialize and store ever-increasing amounts of data, and how to harness the power of collected data.
  • Next-Generation Manufacturing
    The next generation of manufacturing is here, with technology transforming 20th century assembly lines into 21st century high-tech institutions. Technology is changing the way manufacturers of all sizes create their products and deliver them to their customers. We learned how manufacturers can develop new products and processes, understand customer needs, stay competitive, and finance their innovative ideas.
