The FOUND Conference is bringing together great speakers and participants to move search and content marketing forward, industries that need a little shaking up.”

We are at a time of great interest and enormous change in organic search, content marketing and social media. As these disciplines continue to grow, they have also started to intersect, working to understand common ground and ownership of traditional tactics.

To add to the complexity, Google's algorithm updates have forced startups, brands and agencies to reexamine their values. This means at times abandoning tactics that were recently created (such as gaming the system through link building and low-quality/high quantity content), forcing all to return to a focus on relevant content for users.

As the content renaissance evolves, advances in cloud platforms, big data technology and mobile device distribution, SEO and content marketing service providers are in a daily race to develop advantageous uses for these innovations.

Enter FOUND Conf, an open discussion with brands and agencies who are leading the charge and looking for answers, the SaaS companies that are building technology to handle the changing climate, and industry thought leaders who are looking to predict what's next.

Join us at FOUND Conference SV, a new conference series that we kicked off in New York City in February of 2013. This event will be held in Mountain View, CA at the 500 Startups office. Future events will be held in those cities around that world that are seeing the most innovation in digital marketing and technology including LA, Tokyo, Shanghai and more.

The evening will feature expert speakers, challenging questions, audience-encouraged participating, and ample opportunities for networking. This Silicon Valley event will be especially geared towards startups and companies on the leading edge of innovation in digital marketing.

*** This will be an intimate gathering to allow all attendees to participate and network effectively. For that reason, space is limited.
