CUTTING THE CORD

Speaker: Avner Ronen, CEO and Co-Founder, Boxee, Inc.

Avner Ronen will discuss cutting the cord and its impact on consumers, content providers, service providers (cable and telcos) and technology innovators.

About the speaker:

Since 2008, Ronen has been forcing TV execs to reevaluate how they think about TV, standing up to industry giants Comcast, NBC, ABC and HDNet owner, Mark Cuban. Named one of Rolling Stone’s Top Agents of Change, Ronen is the Internet generation's everyman - fighting to make personalized, Internet-delivered TV a reality - bringing video from everywhere, to any device, at any time.

The idea is catching on.  Boxee has won numerous awards each year since it’s founding including the 2008 Consumer Electronics Association's Innovation award, G4’s Best of the Best products of CES in 2009, and 2010’s Last Gadget Standing.

A serial entrepreneur, Ronen has spoken around the globe about the future of TV. His candid approach to rethinking TV has made him a sought-after presence for places like SxSW, CES, The Paley Center for Media, MIPcom and the World Economic Forum, among hundreds of others.

His fascination in harnessing the Internet to make peoples’ lives better started in the army where he helped build the Israeli military’s first Intranet, ensuring that deprived Israeli soldiers could quickly and easily exchange information.
