Our First Xconomy Forum:
The Future of Innovation in New England
December 5, 2007 • 5:00-7:30 pm
Bartos Theatre, MIT Media Laboratory, 20 Ames Street, Cambridge, MA
New England is home to the world’s greatest concentration of elite universities, large corporations and startups, venture-capital and business leadership, great research hospitals, and science and technology expertise spanning everything from life sciences to energy to IT. But how well do we collaborate and share ideas? How well do we identify and tackle the challenges that are critical to the region’s future and the planet’s? In short, is our region living up to its full potential—and how can we reach the next level of success?
