Event Details

Yale Tech is hosting its second annual conference, themed "Transforming Industries." Co-hosted by the Yale Club of New York City, the event will focus on emerging sectors, ones undergoing disruption, and the people making it happen.

Hear from proven investors, operators and entrepreneurs on how they succeeded strategically. Meet fellow Yalies who can help your business grow or get your idea off the ground. Last year's inaugural conference  in San Francisco sold out and drew 200 alumni from across the world coming as far as Shanghai. Don't miss out on this year's conference!

All Yale alumni are welcome to join this event. Yale Club Members, please reserve using the Yale Club’s online calendar for a limited number of tickets at a special Club-member price.
