Our inaugural event last summer at Oxford University brought great innovators together with American entrepreneurs – the results were nothing short of amazing.
It’s a CEO’s job to find the tools which help their companies grow. Moonshots and Moneymakers is THE conference to make that happen.
I wanted to learn how the biggest ideas in technology could help me back home in Iowa with my company. That’s exactly what I got.

As the leader of a healthcare institution, we have to stay ahead of ideas that can improve clinical outcome, patient satisfaction and financial performance. Spending a week with entrepreneurs and innovators created a lot of new opportunities for us.
