Event Details

Xconomy Forum: Intersect: Innovating Where Disciplines Collide

The most interesting innovations are found where disciplines, industries, and cultures intersect---where intelligent machines edit human writers, drones plant trees, and cloud computing accelerates the transformation of healthcare. Xconomy Intersect will explore these productive areas through an afternoon of conversations with top investors, company builders, startup leaders, and researchers. These key constituents are remixing the Pacific Northwest's expertise in software, commerce, mobile, life sciences, and more, competing and collaborating with counterparts around the world to tackle some of today’s biggest challenges and business opportunities.

Join us December 8 for a unique view of the crossroads from which the next big idea may emerge.
