Viewpoint Luncheon: Does Metro Milwaukee Have What it Takes in the Age of Innovation?

Thursday, September 28, 2017  

11:45 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Potawatomi Hotel & Casino | Woodland Dreams Ballroom

 

Foxconn's decision to invest in southeast Wisconsin may be a game changer for advanced manufacturing, but how is our region faring overall in transitioning to a knowledge economy? Do we measure up to our peers when it comes to talent and idea development, capital formation, and other characteristics deemed vital in today's globalized climate? What strategies should our region pursue to advance innovation and drive long-term economic growth?  

Join the Public Policy Forum at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore Metro Milwaukee's progress in building an economy that can thrive in the digital age. 

We'll begin by reviewing the findings of our Innovation Index, a new report that gauges our region's performance on a range of metrics associated with innovation and knowledge. Then, we'll hear from a panel of economic development and technology leaders:

Dr. Michael Lovell, President, Marquette University
Elmer Moore, Executive Director, Scale Up Milwaukee
Pat O'Brien, President, Milwaukee 7
Tom Still, President, Wisconsin Technology Council

Moderated by Steve Jagler, Business Editor, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
