Renowned speakers representing three distinct sectors will give 10-minute overviews of important trends and issues in their respective fields to an interdisciplinary audience of graduate and undergraduate students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
Following the discussion, attendees will break into groups to brainstorm potential businesses solutions to each sector’s major challenges.
