The conference brings together over 40 industry thought leaders, seasoned professionals, and VCs to share the best and latest learnings, technologies, and trends in mobile.

“In the last ten years, the digital world has changed dramatically. We’ve gone from what was referred to as the open web, a meritocratic platform where businesses could thrive and grow, to a world of closed-off ecosystems where businesses are entirely dependent on selfishly motivated, walled gardens,” said Alex Austin, CEO and co-founder of Branch. “Fragmentation is the perfect way to describe the challenges that we’re all facing today, where tactics and best practices change on a monthly basis. Branch sees community as the solution to this problem, and Branchout as the place where we can bring the community together.”
