Registration Link

The first event, White Rhino Intersection, was offered primarily to Boston and Cambridge area residents. This fall's event is being offered to a wider audience. We have already heard from participants who plan to come from Singapore, Seattle, Houston, NYC, D.C., Philadelphia. In order to accommodate more attendees, we have been able to secure the use of the gorgeous conference facilities of Microsoft's Cambridge Research and Development Center on the banks of the Charles River at 1 Memorial Drive. The site commands a spectacular view of the river and the Boston skyline.

Feel free to pass this article and registration link along to anyone you feel may be interested in attending.

Looking forward to having you join us.
