From the producers of the acclaimed Under the Radar, the Momentum Growth Conference honors 15 industry leaders dominating the next stage of the growth cycle - a who's who of leading companies with real customers, real revenue, real partnerships, and the vision to change their market landscape in the next 12-18 months.

At Momentum, discussions will not only be about how these superstars gained momentum, but how they plan on keeping it. We'll be talking about growth - the business opportunities that lie ahead for the Momentum 15, the current stakeholders in the market and the entire ecosystem surrounding it. The conference will also feature 15 “ones to watch” – rising stars who have every indication of being unstoppable.
