We just wrapped up Techonomy Detroit 2013, but you can watch the entire conference, start-to-finish, right here. (To watch individual sessions, click here.)

Techonomy Detroit 2013 is a series of conversations and workshops we began last year at our first Detroit conference. Our urgent theme is the role of technology and innovation in boosting American economic growth, job creation, and urban revival. The all-day Techonomy Detroit focuses on issues that form the foundation of the urban century, with technology at the core of the conversation. We see it as the central source of both disruption and opportunity.

Techonomy Detroit brings together leaders and thinkers from business, technology, government and academia to better understand how to move America and the world into an urbanized, technologized inclusive future.

In addition to Jack Dorsey of Twitter and Square, confirmed speakers include Rodney Brooks of Rethink Robotics, Jean Case of The Case Foundation, Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson, Quicken Loans Chairman Dan Gilbert, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, and Venture for America CEO Andrew Yang. Our Detroit partners include the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Quicken Loans, McKinsey & Company, Cisco, Ford Motor Company, Michigan Media Solutions, Automation Alley, and Skidmore Studio.
