Innovation Forum

Innovation Forum

Innovation Forum programs delve into a cool or disruptive technology or a venture of interest to our audience of entrepreneurs, investors and technology enthusiasts. Led by innovators, thought leaders, researchers, and business luminaries, they often take the form of a panel presentation.

Audience participation is encouraged. As with all MIT Enterprise Forum Northwest events, Innovation Forums provide opportunities for attendees to share advice and network with peers.
