Sign of the times: Half the time consumers spend on the Internet is on their phone – and it’s growing every day. That means that companies that understand what we do with our phones and where we go are astonishingly well positioned to understand the future.

Foursquare is one of those companies – and they’ve been at this for 5 years. Some of the biggest and most interesting startups - everyone from Uber to Pinterest and WhatsApp - use Foursquare’s directory of places. 2014 could be the year that we find out exactly who is in the right place at the right time to seize this mobile opportunity.

Don’t miss an opportunity to hear directly from Dennis Crowley, CEO of Foursquare, in conversation with Owen Thomas, editor in chief of ReadWrite at the next ReadWriteMix in San Francisco. (Out of towners: It's the same week as WWDC so we hope you can join us!)

The event will be on Tuesday June 3 at 6PM. Tickets cost $15 and drinks will be served. All proceeds benefit Girls Who Code – a group that works to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.

Don’t miss it - it's going to be a great night. RSVP here
