The 2018 Next Gen Summit included a morning invite-only Mock Pitch Exercise and an afternoon forum with engaging topics and speakers. The day culminated with networking and a rooftop reception.


A mock scenario was crafted full of exciting and emerging legal issues facing most technology companies today. This exercise gave teams the chance to show off their ability to craft and present thoughtful advice based on limited and imperfect information, exactly the challenge they will face when pitching a new client. We enlisted the help of fantastic in-house counsel from different industries and geographies who played the role of the mock client from augmented reality gaming company NeverLose!


The afternoon Next Gen Forum consisted of engaging speakers, dynamic panels and an interactive session focused on building leadership and professional development skills.
