SAN FRANCISCO, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mixpanel, the data analytics leader, will host their 2(nd) Data Driven Conference on July 31, 2014 at San Francisco's Terra Gallery. At the conference, industry leaders will discuss how data has impacted their business models and informed their decision-making process. The Data Driven Conference is not just about learning from leading experts, but seeks to spark conversation between data driven people. Interpreting data and turning new insights into pragmatic changes demands creativity and ingenuity as a tool for revolutionizing the way companies work.

Suhail Doshi, co-founder and CEO of Mixpanel, says, "This conference brings together the brightest people in technology, all of whom are using data to understand and change the world. We are excited to host this event and learn from the great slate of speakers."

The conference's keynote speakers are:

    --  Max Levchin, CEO of Affirm, Co-founder of PayPal - Max is known as one
        of the most data driven entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, having built
        PayPal, Slide, Glow, and Affirm. Throughout his career he has mined data
        to grow, adapt, and evolve products to deliver the best possible results
        for each audience. Max's track record is testament: gut instinct is no
        match for hard data.
    --  Marc Andreessen, General Partner at Andreessen Horowitz - Marc is a
        valued advisor to and investor in Mixpanel. He developed the Netscape
        browser and a number of other technologies that were essential to the
        growth of the Internet. Andreessen's experiences as an entrepreneur,
        investor, and board member at several large technology firms have
        positioned him to offer unique insight into technology trends.
    --  Leah Busque, CEO of TaskRabbit - Leah is the pioneer of the "service
        networking" concept. Leah began TaskRabbit in 2008, and has since
        expanded with $40 million in venture funding and 60 employees. Her app
        connects those with tasks to be done with those who can complete them.
        Leah has used data to keep TaskRabbit ahead of the competition and to
        fuel the start-up's growth.

In addition to the three marquee keynote fireside chats, panelists will be discussing topics such as: "Pushing the Boundaries: Using Data at Scale," "Disrupting Old, Stodgy Industries with Data," "Cracking Distribution on Mobile," and "Data Science is the New Rocket Science."
