DEMO Mobile will highlight the best new mobile technologies based on design, innovation and market potential and will be held April 17, 2013 at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco.

Legendary entrepreneur, investor and mentor Vinod Khosla will keynote DEMO Mobile 2013, revealing how other entrepreneurs can identify and profit from industry shifts.

He will share insight from his most recent book, The Startup Owner's Manual: The Step-By-Step Guide for Building a Great Company, and how DEMO Mobile 2013 attendees can make the most of mobile market potential, from building better teams to budgeting for business success.
