Unity Founder David Helgason Participates in Techonomy 14

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2014) - Unity Technologies is proud to announce that founder David Helgason will participate in a panel session at Techonomy 14 on November 10, 2014 from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PT at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay.

Scheduled for November 9-11, 2014, the conference will explore how technology transforms and accelerates progress for both business and society. Led by Chief Techonomist David Kirkpatrick, business leaders, technologists, and leading thinkers, Techonomy is an intimate, two-day interactive conversation about tech-driven transformation in business and society. The conference will explore how technology transforms and accelerates progress for business and society. Since the world is facing myriad and urgent challenges, the organizers aim to help people better understand how tech can address them. The program focuses on business, because so much of society's transformative energy is concentrated there. Businesses must aggressively and consciously harness the power of tech, while simultaneously partnering with governments, civil society and, increasingly, empowered citizens. As the tools of progress shift, individuals and institutions must rethink how they adapt and contribute.
