  • Come get the Cliff Notes version of the 12 advances that will transform the global economy as heralded by McKinsey & Company, presented by local contractor Kevin Smith

    Applications of the 12 technologies to be discussed have a potential economic impact between $14 trillion and $33 trillion a year by 2025 based on an in-depth analysis of potential applications and the value they could create in a number of ways.

    Implications for our local economy will be discussed by Dale Moore.  As Director for Strategic Initiative Coordination and Execution at NAVAIR, Dale’s mantra has consistently been that big, Disruptive changes are coming, and they will be coming faster and faster.  Dale emphasizes speed and thinking ahead in both community and military activity to head off "singularity”, where the chaos of constant change outpaces the ability to plan for it.

    Both Disruption and Urgency are key themes in Innovation, from Defense planning to Venture investment.

    On the Venture side, we’ll be joined by Frank Dickson, Program Director of the Maryland Venture Fund. 

    Frank will provide an overview of The InvestMaryland Challenge, a national seed and early-stage business competition hosted by the Fund. The Challenge awards $400,000 in grants and a host of ancillary prizes and business services to winning companies.  The competition also fosters direct investments from venture capital firms and angel investors due to the heightened exposure participating companies receive.

    Where do YOU fit in the Disruption Continuum?!

    Program Begins at 6:00 p.m. (please note that ground floor doors may automatically lock at 6:30p.m.).  Happy Hour to follow at The Tides.
