You are surrounded by some of the sharpest minds in technology. Wouldn't it be great to have an easy way to get connected? The Power Meal is an excellent solution. These small, informal group discussions of 5-8 people are hosted by someone you'd want to meet and cover topics you'd like to discuss. Kind of like a book club, but without the books. There's at least one happening each week.
This is one part social gathering of the Tech Square community and one part podcast recording. Each month, after sharing some food and drink (from an automated bartender, no less) we explore one topic from three perspectives. Each guest goes into the hot seat to talk with our host 1:1, then all three guests engage in a roundtable conversation. We end with questions from the live studio audience.
A hands-on event experience that starts with a deep dive by an industry leader on a selected topic. Then, attendees form groups to answer the key question posed in the deep dive and finish by presenting their solutions to everyone. Afterward, we'll assemble these ideas into a digital report to share with the rest of the community. Look for six of these in 2017.
Our quarterly science fair-style demo day focuses on a different emerging technology each time. Researchers, startups, students, and corporate innovation teams showcase their experiments on the main floor. In the middle of it all, 3 experts will each take the stage to give a five-minute Fast Forward talk about how the featured technology will impact our lives 3-5 years from now.
