i2e = invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship

Necessity is the mother of invention, and the needs of the 21st century are massive—cleaner fuel for our cars, homes, and cities; more efficient drugs to treat our sick; and safer ways to protect our online information, to name just a few.  i2e is a fundamental approach that encourages the application of time and research to problems that may seem too big to solve, but can no longer be ignored.  

Join us for an insightful discussion of the importance of innovative entrepreneurship in addressing today’s challenges.
