Role of Government in Fostering Innovation
If you care about Politics, Tech/Innovation or both, THIS IS THE FREE NETWORKING EVENT FOR YOU!
The General Election takes place less than a week after this event and buzz on both Government and Innovation is peaking. We believe it’s an optimal time to spark conversation that leads to action!
Miami’s Tech & Innovation community has come a long way in a relatively short time. We still have plenty of work to do to reach our potential. We see many players across countless community needs. We’ve noted the need for more connectedness between stakeholders and the government’s consistent role as a potential facilitator. With more genuine collaboration, Miami can get to its potential faster.
We put together representatives from key groups in the innovation community:
Government Elected Official
Corporate Innovation Leader
Youth Innovation Engagement Leader
Community Voice (MODERATOR)
…for you to hear from, engage and discuss with on how we can all collaborate to build an optimal innovation community.
Here’s our lineup*:
5:30pm – 6:25pm: Mix and Mingle (*Free* Snacks, Beer, and Wine)
6:25pm – 6:30pm: Welcome + Introduction
6:30pm – 7:15pm: Panel on Government, Collaboration and Innovation (Who are the stakeholders, what are key issues, why does it matter, what are the plans, and how can we get more involved?)
7:15pm – 7:30pm: Audience Q&A
7:30pm – 8:00pm: Mix and Mingle Networking Final Connections
*Lineup will start on schedule!
