Technology investor James Montgomery and Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies have announced additions to the lineup of speakers slated to present at OASIS: THE MONTGOMERY SUMMIT. OASIS – an invitation-only event featuring top entrepreneurs and investors, senior level media and technology executives, and leading industry visionaries–will be held March 5-6, 2014 at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica.
OASIS speakers added to the conference's schedule include BlackBerry interim CEO John Chen, bestselling author Deepak Chopra, and tech legend Paul Maritz. Presenting at OASIS for the second time is Golden Globe-nominated actress and Honest Company founder Jessica Alba.
Chen, a distinguished world leader in technology and former CEO of Sybase, Inc., was tapped to run BlackBerry in November, 2013. Chopra is America's preeminent expert on alternative medicine and holistic health, and has authored 65 books; his current focus is the intersection of technology and wellness. Maritz, currently CEO of data firm Pivotal Labs, worked for Microsoft from 1986 to 2000 and was a member of the five-person Executive Committee that managed the company's explosive growth during that time. In the years since, he has consistently been at the forefront of consumer computing technologies as CEO of VMware and other companies. Honest Co. founder Alba launched her brand of non-toxic baby products at the conference in 2012, and she returns this year after completing a $25 million round of funding.
An outgrowth of the hugely popular Montgomery Technology Conference, OASIS makes its debut this year with 150 exceptional presenting companies. These companies will fall into three categories: “First Look” companies that generate less than $10 million in yearly revenues; "Emerging" companies with revenues between $10 million and $50 million; and "Growth" companies whose yearly revenues exceed $50 million. Prior conferences have provided early looks at Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Splunk, Marketo, Meraki, Exact Target, Rocket Fuel, and other breakout companies.
OASIS will have a special focus on creativity and innovation at the intersection of the technology and business worlds. "Lone Wolf has the vision of a complete enterprise solution for the real estate brokerage space. With a client base covering almost 10,000 real estate offices and 230,000 real estate agents, our company is poised to capitalize on the industry footprint we have created. Using a SAAS business model in a vertical niche industry with the potential for big data, our company is in the right position at the right time to present at OASIS."" said Lorne Wallace, CEO of Lone Wolf.
Founder Montgomery says his goal with OASIS is to bridge one of the industry's top insider technology and finance conferences with global thought leadership in innovation and creativity. "Montgomery Summit stakeholders have always relished the atmosphere at the Fairmont Miramar for intimate, high-level business networking and insights," said Montgomery. "At the same time, these leaders embrace an atmosphere where creativity and innovation can be explored in the context of building great products and companies."
Other speakers previously announced for OASIS include Ashish Thakkar, named World’s Best Young Entrepreneur by the World Entrepreneurship Forum, and Brazilian mining billionaire Bernardo Paz, who will talk about the importance of creativity and innovation through the context of his world-famous art retreat in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil.
The conference will feature an inaugural business plan competition—Money Ball—between early stage companies seeking financing in a live “Shark Tank”-like environment. The audience will be given the opportunity to invest in the winning company through a crowd sourcing platform.
Panel sessions this year feature industry leaders and robust debates on the future of advertising technology, enterprise technology, digital payments, and digital entertainment. Panelists will include senior executives from Facebook, Citrix, Google, and Axicom; as well as leading venture investors and entrepreneurs.
The digital payments panel, moderated by Quentin Hardy of the New York Times, will closely examine the future of Bitcoin and other “math based” currencies from the perspectives of leading entrepreneurs and investors.
