Jerome Nadel, CMO of Rambus Inc., opened the MLOVE ConFestival with Rambus CTO Dr. Martin Scott sharing new opportunities for invention in the Internet of Things. “The MLOVE initiative and events are symbolic of the true spirit of invention, bringing together the creativity, drive, and expertise of both entrepreneurial start-ups and established market leaders in a dynamic, yet intimate, environment. The result is a collective brilliance of thought leaders and innovators, all centered on the single concept of mobility as a catalyst for change and opportunity.

This would not have been possible without the dedication of our MLOVE team and these amazing speakers. I am also very thankful for the ongoing engagement of our sponsors and partners,” said Harald Neidhardt, MLOVE founder & curator.
