There will be several high-profile speakers such as Stefan Weitz (Senior Director of Search, Bing), Steve Jacobs (CIO, Gilt Groupe), Shauna Mei (Founder & CEO, AHAlife), and Jon Czaja (COO, Bonobos).  You can learn about the future of search, building a brand through online and offline experiences, and how to build a fashion brand in the digital space.

Tickets range from $20 for the launch only, $199 for the conference and the launch, and $1,500 for VIP status including a fashion show, private summit and lounge.

There are cute little “Tech Week 2013” signs all over Soho…the picture I took has a lot of glare because they match the blue sky.  If you want to meet the next Mark Zuckerberg, you should probably make sure to be in Soho this week!
