Digital Fight Club: Houston 2021 (Virtual Edition)

Dallas Virtual Events in Deep Ellum will bring the second Digital Fight Club, Virtual Edition, to Houston next week. Just like IRL, they will be putting two experts up against each other in front of a raucous virtual audience where they will discuss their position on a topic in their field in front of 500 CEOs, technologists, entrepreneurs, investors, and five accomplished referees.  The virtual audience will experience the fights with friends on their own virtual couch, heckle and react verbally and electronically as you would in person, network by moving to another couch, and chat the audience up. Then they will let the referees and audience vote for a winner within the virtual experience.  Fight Schedule: Fight #1: Energy Transition: What technology is king to get us there?  Fighters: Moji Karimi - CEO, Cemvita Factory vs Katie Mehnert - CEO, ALLY EnergyFight #2: Space Race: Who will lead space commercialization?  Fighters: TBA vs TBA Fight #3: Digital Divide: The greatest barrier to bridging the divide?  Fighters: Ashley DeWalt - MD, DivInc vs TBA Fight #4: Sweet Teams are Made of This: The post-pandemic employee experience Fighters: TBA vs TBA Fight #5:  Innovation in a Virtual World: Impossible?
