About the Innovation Accelerators and Summits
The Strategic Innovation Accelerator and Summit series was created by Dr. Ricketts and the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center to enable multi-disciplinary discussions between senior leaders on relevant topics of the year. Unlike conventional, discipline-specific conferences, where topical content is narrow and participants are generally from the same discipline, the Accelerators and Summits bring together people from many sectors. These include government, business, education, non-profit, and the arts and sciences.
The goal is to create and stimulate conversation that would normally not take place elsewhere, between senior leaders on topics related to innovation and society.
