We have reached an innovation crisis. During the past three years the United States has lost its competitive edge. Our dismal economy has forced the failure of many emerging technologies. Without these new technologies to rally around, the rest of the world has caught up.
The rest of the world now knows how to program the way we program, only cheaper. The rest of the world now knows how to manufacture the way we manufacture, only cheaper. The rest of the world now knows how to run communication systems the way we run communication systems, only cheaper. Without our ability to stay on the cutting edge we have to compete on price, and that is a battle that we are rapidly losing. Prime jobs are moving overseas in record numbers.
Because of this the DaVinci Institute has put together the Colorado Innovation Summit to create a solution for the growing crisis. Slated for July 18th at the Cable Center in Denver, the event will feature Marissa Mayer, Director of Consumer Web Products at Google; Donovan Hicks, former CEO of Ball Aerospace; Jon Nordmark, CEO of eBags; Thomas Frey, Executive Director of the DaVinci Institute; and many more.
