- Nolan Bushnell – Founder of Atari and Chuckie Cheese
- Brock Pierce – Mighty Ducks child star turned entrepreneur, angel investor and pioneer of cryptocurrency Bitcoin
- John McAfee – Founder of McAfee anti-virus, FutureTense Central and Autonomous Armor
#HCON is a three-day conference celebrating technology, startups, cryptocurrency, and forward thinking. Topics of discussion include the latest technology trends, startups, apps, and developments in Bitcoin. Hundreds of entrepreneurs, startup founders, angel investors, venture capitalists, cryptocurrency users, gamers, technology enthusiasts and creatives from across the globe are expected to attend.
In case you are not familiar with The Round House, it is a co-working space/incubator/accelerator that just launched at the end of last year. The Round House chose Opelika, AL – over nearby Auburn – for one significant reason. Opelika is one of only 7 towns in the U.S. that has a 1GB/sec fiber network. They have yet to fully launch the accelerator program, but we will be sure to update you when they do.
