Subscriber Summit

The Information's Fifth Annual Subscriber Summit

Thursday, October 17, 2019 • 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

On October 17, join us for The Information’s Fifth Subscriber Summit at the Rosewood Sand Hill, where industry leaders gather to discuss the most important issues facing tech. This exclusive event is limited to All Access subscribers of The Information and VIP ticketholders. 

Our flagship events feature substantive on-stage conversations and introduce our subscribers to the most important people in tech. Over the years, we have hosted CEOs, founders and executives from companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Stripe, Dropbox, Snap, Airbnb, Goldman Sachs, Allen & Co. and many more.

This year’s speaker line-up includes...

  • Fidji Simo, Head of the Facebook App, Facebook
  • Priscilla Chan, Co-Founder & Co-CEO, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
  • Max Levchin, Founder & CEO, Affirm
  • Brad Garlinghouse, CEO, Ripple
  • Apoorva Mehta, CEO, Instacart  

... As well as lunch roundtables on topics such as:

  • The new consumer
  • The data-driven future of venture investing
  • Demystifying Chinese tech

Also, new this year, we will be making curated introductions between attendees, based on your interests and our knowledge of The Information subscriber community. We hope you find these introductions worthwhile.

If you’re not an All Access Subscriber, you may purchase an All Access subscription or a VIP ticket (at a rate of $1,750), which will also give you access to:

  • A VIP lunch with Jessica Lessin and select speakers
  • Two additional guest passes to the Summit
  • Recognition in the program and on stage

From sitting down with a key leader at one of the most important—and scrutinized—companies on the planet to delving into the myriad ways tech is transforming financial services, it is going to be a busy and information-filled day.

This event has passed.
