Even if you don’t work in tech, you’ve probably wondered about what it is about the San Francisco Bay Area that makes it a hotbed for innovation. One BoxWorks track we’re particularly excited about this year is “Secrets of Silicon Valley,” where you’ll learn about Silicon Valley’s rich history, hear from venture capitalists about hot trends and get a glimpse at the future of tech. Here’s a quick rundown of 3 of the 6 incredible sessions:

Wonder Women

Women own 40% of America’s private businesses and are driving Silicon Valley to new heights. Get their unique insights on technology, leadership and life in the world’s innovation capitol. In this panel, you’ll get the unique opportunity to hear from big names like:

We’re very excited to be one of the only conferences to bring you the unique perspective of women who’ve made a big impact on Silicon Valley.
