Jeff Pulver, Internet pioneer, entrepreneur, investor, and futurist that helped shape the worldwide market acceptance of VoIP, is hosting the Fall 2017 MoNage conference from October 24th-26th, 2017 at the Boston Public Library. MoNage explores the future of the conversational web, bringing together leaders in the fields of AI, Internet communications, chatbots, blockchains, cryptocurrencies, and computer science. This event will also feature a rapid-fire pitch contest where teams can pitch their business to VC’s for a chance to win $5,000 in cryptocurrency.

“The way that humans communicate is evolving rapidly,” says Jeff Pulver. “I’ve spent the last few decades working at the intersection of communication and technology, and I’ve never been more excited. From blockchains to artificial intelligence, the Boston area – including New Hampshire – is a hotbed for the types of emerging technologies that will shape the future. That’s why it’s the ideal place to hold this year’s MoNage conference. If you’re into ‘the next big thing’, you’re not going to want to miss it.”

Jeff Pulver knows a thing or two about modern communications and technological innovations. As the founder of Vonage, Jeff is widely acknowledged as “the man who saved the voice telephony industry.” Twenty years after his innovations, global mobile carriers are using the same groundbreaking voice over IP (VoIP) technology, and apps like Skype and Apple Facetime are a part of daily life. Jeff has been keeping an eye on the latest developments in communications for the last few decades, and has gathered the top voices in their respective fields to speak at the Fall 2017 MoNage conference.

Also at the Fall 2017 MoNage, startups and individuals will get the opportunity to take part in a unique, quick-fire pitch contest in front of attending venture capitalists. In a format that is part “speed dating” and part “Shark Tank”, teams will deliver a 90-second business pitch to a panel of venture capitalists, experts and investors. The winning team will win $5,000 in Ethereum — with a potential for greater investment offers for exceptional business plans. This is going to be an exciting opportunity for new businesses to get off the ground and get innovating!

“The talent and innovation in the Boston area is second-to-none — and the best and the brightest will be at MoNage,” says Jeff Pulver. “That’s why I’m looking forward to offering this rapid-fire pitch contest. I’ve invested in over 350 startups since 1998, including being an early investor Twitter, and so I know better than anyone that sometimes the businesses and technologies that will shape our lives tomorrow just need a little boost today. I’m excited to see what future success stories emerge from this event, and for the opportunity to connect with budding entrepreneurial rockstars in the blockchain and AI space.”

To register for the contest, entrants must have already registered and paid for a ticket to the MoNage conference. Because of time constraints, the contest is limited to 20 teams. Please email Jeff Pulver (jeff@pulver.com) to be considered for a spot. Teams must be registered and present on October 24 to qualify.

Since so many topics will be discussed, on October 24th there will be 2 summits: “MoNage ChatBot Summit” and “MoNage Money and ICO Summit.” The MoNage Conference continues on October 25th and October 26th. A three-day pass covers full access to both summits and the MoNage Conference, or attendees can go to separate summits. MoNage pricing and registration information can be viewed here, or at MoNage.io. Discounted tickets can be purchased directly from Jeff Pulver (jeff@pulver.com), at the price of 1 Ethereum.
