For over 30 years, the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest has been stimulating the intellectual curiosity of the greater Puget Sound region. Throughout our storied history, we have explored technology’s role in improving the world and inspired innovation.
As a result of our long tenure exploring all corners of the technology ecosystem, we have created a hungry pack of knowledge omnivores. These individuals make up our speakers, our volunteers, our sponsors, and our audience members. No matter what role they play within the Forum, they have many of the same characteristics.
Knowledge omnivores are intelligent, they seek to be informed, and they have an openness to share new ideas. Perhaps most importantly, these knowledge omnivores gravitate towards other intelligent individuals. They are drawn to other intelligent people and yearn to understand what technology will do for us next.
In the last 30 years, we’ve seen technology introduced to the masses and have reaped copious benefits from it. What will see in the next 30 years? How will we get there? What’s next for us?
