"Sustainable Innovation: America is Competitive Again"

8:30PM-9:00PM Poster Session / Networking

Abstract:  Innovation drives economic growth, our quality of life and is the only hope of addressing the major challenges we face. But America, a cornerstone of innovation throughout the world, has become increasingly short-sighted.  By taking innovation for granted we threaten not only our own strength, but the overall global economy.

Judy Estrin, technology and business pioneer and author of the new book Closing the Innovation Gap, will talk about how it is essential to reignite sustainable innovation in business, education and government and what is required of business and national leaders to revive organizational, national and global Innovation Ecosystems.
