Congratulations to one and all!

“The final this time is weighted more to the technology side of the business.  There is also focus on checks and productivity and doing more with less or more efficiently.  I want to extend our thanks to all those innovators who entered PIC #13, (which will be luckier for some). We are also delighted to have 3 fantastic dragons join us for the final; PIC fan and long time supporter Alessandra Binazzi, localization industry veteran Salvo Giammarresi and repeat startup founder Peter Swaniker. The final in Silicon Valley will be a must attend for anyone interested in seeing what is really innovating in our industry. See you there!”

Dave Ruane, PIC chair
