Where innovation gets down to business.

Innovation '11 is the premier regional event bringing together technologists, funders, entrepreneurs and business leaders involved with Innovation!  The 2011 conference was oriented towards the entrepreneurial mind-set of today!  The agenda was fast-paced and the setting informal!  A post-conference session allowed participants to meet and ask questions from some of the Innovation Center’s mentors at Startup Xchange.

The conference provided excellent networking opportunities for all attendees, as well as presentations and discussions by some of the area's best known business leaders.  The Innovation Conference is an every other year event.  Look forward to this great event in 2013!
