Market leaders come to STL Partners events because of the unique brainstorming format focused on cutting-edge topics and carefully curated content evolved through consultation with the sectors leading executives. To be part of the New Digital Economic future apply here to participate.

"When I got to the Executive Brainstorm I was unsure of the mix of people. Would it be mostly stiff execs who are blind to the innovation needed and shackled to the old business model (career guys) or would it be a seditious lot of frustrated disrupters, jumping up and down and crying wolf once again. But it was neither. I actually met a group of smart people who are genuinely concerned and very interested in the future of a fantastic industry."
