Zpryme is proud to share that Jack Dangermond, co-founder of mapping software maker Esri, has joined the Class of ETS17 (Energy Thought Summit 2017) in Austin, Texas from March 27 to March 30. In 1969, he co-founded with his wife Laura the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), a privately held Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software company.

“One of the areas of technology that has gone further than I ever expected is mapping,” Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates shared with Forbes last year. “And we have Jack Dangermond to thank, in large part, for his pioneering efforts of almost 50 years.” Gates added: “He’s one of a kind.”

Esri is now being used by some 350,000 businesses, government agencies and NGOs around the world who collectively create some 150 million new maps every day.

Register today to join Jack and 100+ thought leaders as they debate the state and future of energy next week.
