Igniting Future Technologies That Will Drive Maryland’s Economy

Remember the first time you heard the phrase “World Wide Web?” Just think of the technology companies that have become the leaders of today’s information economy since that day. Google, Amazon, and many others.

Using the fast-paced “Ignite” format, this session will feature six panelists sharing their perspectives on how technological advances are being adapted to create new products and processes by entrepreneurs who are working collaboratively. The key to spurring innovation and creating new companies is communication – coming together and exchanging ideas and information to harness the latest innovations and discoveries to develop the technologies of tomorrow.

Join us as we get a glimpse of the future and hear from entrepreneurs on the cutting edge of technology.
