The U.S. economy is gaining steam, and employment is coming off its best year since 1999. A new ethos of entrepreneurship is spawning incubators and innovation districts in scores of cities. President Obama has announced a Precision Medicine initiative that could herald a revolution in healthcare. Yet the optimism behind such trends is tempered by often-contradictory forces, from terrorism to a widening income gap and talk of a new bubble. How are various innovation economies responding and evolving in this climate? What are the effects of the oil price collapse and bigger forces on U.S. competitiveness and the global scene? What are the latest technologies, trends, and business innovations emerging to address these challenges and improve our future?
Napa Summit 2015 marks the fourth convening of an intimate and interdisciplinary gathering where far-seeing technologists and exemplary business leaders and investors come together to explore what’s over the horizon. Together we’ll discuss insights, challenges, and proposed solutions to big issues spanning the economy, STEM education, aging, energy, personalized medicine, cybersecurity, robotics, food technology, online marketplaces, and more.
