Techonomy

Techonomy Techonomy is a conference and digital media company that explores the intersection of technology, business and social progress.

Techonomy’s name embodies our beliefs and our mission—it combines the words “technology” and “economy” because technology is a central part of the economy in which we operate and the society in which we live. We see technology as inextricably entwined with just about every activity that humans undertake, and seek as a company to help the world, and especially business leaders, take advantage of it. Techonomy casts its lens broadly across technology, business and society. We believe that all leaders should, in effect, become technologists. We seek conversation at the highest level about the potential for technology and business to drive social progress. We host conferences and create content to explore the pace of change, and what it means. For more information, please visit http://techonomy.com, or our other social platforms. Or contact us: [email protected]

Mission: Our mission is to help the world continue to rapidly evolve its own conception of what's possible, as technology advances and we steadily realize that more and more gigantic problems of mankind can be effectively addressed. Business is most often the best way to engage these forces, but we work closely with government and social leaders on policy questions as well as with businesses on the opportunities of tech-based innovation.
