Hunter Creative Labs
Limited Capacity full

Session Title: Reinventing what it means to Invent

We'll give a brief overview of our services, and then do a Hunter Hack with everyone that will illustrate importance of innovating on jobs not ideas, how to identify smash hits based on baseline metrics, the importance of the group brainstorm, and everyone will leave with a renewed vigor in life and work on how to see and measure impact. We'll stay away from the hard core data/science stuff.

Session TItle: What Large Organizations can Learn from Startups
In this session, we’ll discuss how large organizations can compete with disruptive business models to maintain and exceed their market share.
When a company feels the pressure to innovate, their reaction is often to hire new people and spend more money. However, your efforts will fall flat unless you make major changes to your cultural mindset, departmental structure, and operating procedures.
You’ll leave this action-oriented discussion with a clear roadmap of how to foster the fail fast, fail often mindset that will free your top-performers from fear and unlock their potential to drive your business forward.
 
BURNING QUESTIONS/THINGS WE’LL LEARN TOGETHER…  
With innovation moving at lightning speed, how will can organizations remain relevant and ahead of the curve?
WE’LL DISCUSS:
  • Creating space for creative problem-solving
  • Letting go of process in favor of progress
  • Getting teams to embrace experimentation
  • Connecting decision-makers with internal influencers
  • Recruiting strategies to cultivate top-tier talent

DrugDev
Limited Capacity full

The world expects more from pharma. The reality is we have no shortage of promising treatment candidates, yet developing a drug today costs 30x more than it did 10 years ago – as potentially life-saving drugs remain on the shelf. DrugDev is not interested in making clinical trials a little faster or a little better, because incremental improvements to the process are no longer acceptable. The world demands and deserves a truly disruptive revolution on an enterprise scale that flips the economics of clinical trials. We believe the only solution is to take advantage of unified and modern technology (as opposed to the disparate, clunky systems of the past) that bring study teams and sites together to do more trials and bring more drugs to patients who need them.

NOTE: Due to security, registration for this session will close on Monday, April 3rd.

Session Title:
Data-Driven Patient-Provider Matching: Creating a Win/Win Situation For Both Patients and Providers
What if we could enable a better and more cost-effective healthcare system by leveraging provider data in more meaningful ways? What if patient access--the experience of obtaining appointments and care--was a core focus throughout the healthcare system? Complete, reliable provider data forms the foundation of optimal patient access to healthcare. At Kyruus, we believe that by aggregating and leveraging robust data and creating applications that tap into that data, we can help health systems match each patient with the right provider at the right time. Attendees will join our co-founder in an exploration of how patients most commonly find care and associated challenges they often face during that process. Expect to come away with an understanding of the fundamental role data--and Kyruus’ ProviderMatch solutions--can play in facilitating better experiences for both patients and providers.
Suggested Audience: Product Management Professionals, Software Developers, Software Engineers, Hospital/Health System Marketers, Healthcare IT professionals

Join us for lunch, an office tour and an interactive experience with our autonomous robots! Piaggio Fast Forward is a new company of the Piaggio Group (Owners of Vespa, Moto Guzzi, Aprilia, Gilera and Derbi) that was started in 2015 to re-think how to better move people and goods in urban settings.

We've been featured in the WSJ, Time Magazine, The Economist, CNN, Techcrunch and more and Forrester research said we are "going to change the way people work."

During our session, we'll give you a quick background of how we came to be, talk about what we think is happening in the world of personal mobility and transportation, show you around our office (which includes a prototyping shop with a Kuka robot, multiple 3D printers and other machines) and give you a chance to interact 1-on-1 with Gita. Our company is all about enabling humans to move faster, more efficiently and more enjoyably. Join us for an afternoon to learn about why we think this sector is so interesting and what our bet of the future of transportation will look like.

Session Title: A Look Inside the Sales Enablement Technology Revolution

Brainshark was founded in 1999 with a vision to transform the way companies create and share content. The goal was to empower organizations to create dynamic, video-based eLearning content within minutes... at a fraction of the previous cost. From that point, we’ve continued to evolve, developing a comprehensive product portfolio for content authoring, formal training and sales coaching that now form the core of the Brainshark sales enablement and readiness platform.
Today, that evolution continues as Brainshark is undergoing a technology revolution to deliver on an aggressive vision for the future of sales enablement technology – with a specific focus on virtual sales coaching and skills validation. Our engineers in the Brainshark Labs are innovating and explore technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality, that will take sales enablement to the next level. During this session you will hear from our founders and experts in the field of sales enablement Joe Gustafson and Greg Flynn. You'll also see a demonstration of Brainshark’s Augmented Reality Sales Coaching Simulator based on Microsoft’s HoloLens, as well as some of our latest technology for scoring and rating of virtual coaching sessions.

Session Title: Transformative Change: Innovation in the Health Insurance Market via Agile Software Development


The healthcare industry is undergoing a period of unprecedented change and uncertainty, driven by a number of key factors including regulatory pressures, the rise in consumerism and lagging technology adoption, among others. Technology is the lynchpin to innovation in this space and, unlike many other major industries -- including travel, finance and retail -- healthcare, and more specifically, the health insurance industry, has been slow to adopt modern technology to innovate and transform the way it does business.
Attendees at this NewCo Boston session will explore the various market dynamics that are driving change in healthcare and healthcare IT in a small group discussion with HealthEdge EVP and CMO Ray Desrochers.   Participants will also learn how HealthEdge enables its customers to radically innovate, drastically reduce costs and efficiently address the business imperatives of the evolving healthcare economy. Attendees will then join Sanjeev Sawai, HealthEdge’s Senior Vice President of Products, on a tour to see Agile software development methodology in action, and will meet the engineers building next-generation, business-transforming and award-winning technology products that are solving key business challenges in the health insurance market.

Session Title: Hands-on Rapid Prototyping Workshop
Great designs don’t just happen: they are the results of iteration, revision and the application of perspective. Creating prototypes and models is a core activity of the design process. Using prototypes to explore variations and test your design help you learn about what makes your product great — and what needs refinement.
Join us for an engaging hands-on session to design a prototype! At Cantina, we use prototyping methodology to validate ideas with users, and create a feedback loop where you can keep learning.

In this workshop, you’ll learn new tools, techniques, and even design your own low fidelity prototype with a team guided by our staff. This session will cover:
  • A brief lesson on prototyping.
  • Quick ideation exercise to get the juices flowing.
  • Design and build a prototype to test a solution to a real world problem.
  • Show & tell the prototype’s value to the world.
This session is relevant to not just designers but makers of all kinds, social entrepreneurs, and people who are curious about learning different ways of working.

Session Title: Early-Stage Growth Strategies: What you may not be thinking about, but probably should.

Lunch will be provided at this session.

Last year, CloudHealth Technologies CTO and Founder Joe Kinsella spoke about how to convert an initial concept into a viable technology, and the process of ideating along the way. This year, you’ll get the CEO take on how a business leader lays the groundwork for successful growth.
In this session, CloudHealth Technologies CEO and Co-founder Dan Phillips will unpack the misleadingly simple concept of “growth,” drawing upon learnings gleaned from decades of entrepreneurship and real-world business experience. Attendees will learn what works, what doesn’t, and what you may not be thinking about in the early stages…but probably should be. Dan will dig into the thought process underlying a multitude of critical decisions, including the following:
●      How do you attract top talent and build out a team early on? What selection method goes into making these crucial early hires?
●      How do you encourage the iterative, creative process while still imposing an established framework for building product, marketing to customers, and closing a sale?
●      What technology, processes and systems must be put in place to maintain efficiency and productivity?
●      How do you effectively scale during periods of hyper growth?
●      Where do intangibles -- like culture -- fall with respect to measurable results, such as sales numbers?
●      What unforeseen challenges arise during periods of peak transformation?
CloudHealth Technologies is a workplace that emphasizes creativity and innovation. We aren’t looking to improve a market…we want to fundamentally disrupt it. In working to eliminate the complexity of cloud management for the world’s largest cloud customers, we’ve become one of the fastest growing tech companies in Boston and have begun expansion on a global level.
Join this session if you want to receive candid advice from a serial entrepreneur, learn what it takes to set the stage for future success early on, and hear strategies for undergoing rapid growth (and transformation).

Lunch will be provided!

Carbonite
Limited Capacity full

Session Title: Ransomware: The ‘Uber-ization’ of the Bad Guy

Lunch will be provided at this session.


Data is everywhere, and the more data we have, the more vulnerable we become. Hackers recognize this vulnerability and are developing ransomware viruses to hold personal and business data hostage that will require payment (or “ransom”) for its safe return. These attacks have become so successful that the hacking industry has created ~$1B in revenue this year.
The scariest part? These attacks don’t entail sophisticated technology. With Uber, you only need a car and a smartphone to enter the ride sharing service. Similarly, a ransomware virus only requires a mailing list of potential targets to get off the ground. “Ransomware-as-a-Service” offerings are also being created to serve as a one-stop-shop for hacking resources.
Join us in this session at Carbonite to better understand what a ransomware attack is, the importance of proactively protecting your data, and most importantly, how to get your data back after an attack.


The Carbonite office is on the 6th floor in the Lafayette City Center building (right next to the Hyatt Regency Boston), located at 2 Ave de Lafayette, Boston, MA 02111, on the corner of Avenue de Lafayette and Washington Street. We’re easily accessible via the Green Line (Boylston and Park Street T stops) and Orange Line (Downtown Crossing and Chinatown T stops).

Participants will get the chance to experience ongoing innovation at our North America Labs, especially on topics related to smart cities and to the role of light in productivity and workplace wellbeing. First, the Atlas of Lighting, a joint collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, provides a data-based scientific view of social and economic dynamics of metropolitan areas around the world.

Second, there will be a lighting simulation based on the MIT CityScope project, which is an interactive decision support system for urban development. Third, we will demo a Department of Energy that contributes to personal and organizational goals for workplace wellbeing. It is based on an aggressive energy saving, capable of variable modulation of intensity, distribution, and spectrum of lighting in order to support diverse visual and non-visual needs. 
Our focus on cities stems from the global trend for urbanization, the ubiquitous presence of lighting – with approximately 500 million street lights installed in public spaces globally, and the massive opportunity that connected lighting can bring to our cities. Currently less than 1% of all our global street lights are connected or intelligent. With the emergence of big data, the Internet of Things and connected, digital lighting, we’re bringing much more intelligent functionality into our lighting systems – lighting will go beyond illumination.

Session Title: The Revolution won’t be televised: How the FinTech movement is empowering the consumer and changing the way we bank.
Digital disruptions in FinTech are ubiquitous. From payment platforms to wealth and asset management, from peer to peer lending to crowd-funding, a new generation of start-ups is taking aim at the financial industry – carving away territory traditionally served by banks and overhauling the customer experience from the ground up.
Unencumbered by legacy technologies and structures of traditional banks, new FinTech disruptors are developing digital financial experiences that provide consumers with greater transparency. At the backbone of this disruption is consumer empowerment:   enhanced access and compelling digital experiences for the individual consumer.
Doni co-founder, Ronald Verbrugge, will engage the audience with a provocative analysis of the social and economic forces shaping the evolution of industry based on his more than 25 years of hands-on FinTech expertise and innovation.  Verbrugge will discuss:
  • How the combination of social interaction and technological advancement is shifting the financial balance of power back to the individual: what are consumers looking for from new financial players?
  • New FinTech-driven solutions that are putting consumers at the center of managing their financial health by leveraging the power of the crowd, increased financial transparency, and true ownership of one’s own personal data.
  • How consumers can and should harness the proliferation of these disruptors.
  • How companies like Doni and others can succeed and thrive in this complex and rapidly changing environment.
Suggested audience: Entrepreneurs, developers, FinTech enthusiasts, investors.
Doni, Inc. is a goal achievement platform where users articulate their goals, save together, give to others and take back control of their personal data. Headquartered in Boston, Doni is an international company with offices in Holland and Romania and is a member of the latest class of FinTech start-ups featured at The DCU FinTech Innovation Center.

Sonus Networks
Limited Capacity filling up

Session Title: The Sonus Transition and How It’s Benefiting Your Company’s Security Strategy
Evolve, enhance, repeat or become obsolete. That’s the way technology advances in the ever-changing world we live in. Today’s companies need to provide constant innovation to ensure they stay top of mind with customers. For Sonus, a company celebrating its twentieth birthday this year, its answer came in the form of securing Unified Communications (UC).
Unified Communications (UC), often the forgotten application among CISOs, are more vulnerable and open to attacks than most organizations realize. UC isn’t just the voice call anymore. It’s video, file sharing, messaging and more. And now that it has moved over the Internet, it provides a much richer set of capabilities and is inherently more vulnerable to being exploited. But UC isn’t the only application your business should focus on. With Denial of Service and Cloud platform API-based attacks flooding the news cycle, companies must have a comprehensive security strategy that spans all applications and elements of their networks.
During this engaging session, Sonus’ Mykola Konrad will explain how Sonus has shifted from a “has been” telco to a “NewCo” security-focused company. Mykola will also discuss the culture shift Sonus needed to make that transition and how the company’s new focus will help organizations secure their networks better than ever before.
