In his State of the Union address, President Obama said that the "first step in winning the future is encouraging American innovation [and that] innovation doesn’t just change our lives. It is how we make our living.” Massachusetts understands this better than any region. Our tool chest of education, capital, and research is unsurpassed and puts us at the forefront of innovation globally. 

As we move into 2011 the economy is recovering and jobs are growing -- especially in Massachusetts. But, the lingering questions remain: Is it time to put pedal to the metal and accelerate your business plan? Where are the opportunities? What are the risks? Join Council trustees and members as we hear from some of the nation's foremost economists as they debate the prospects for our innovation economy amid the dizzying swirl of regional, national and global trends. 

Also, learn the ups and downs of exponential corporate growth from four of Massachusetts' exceptional local companies who are building global brands in our backyard. Through an interactive and intimate dialogue we will uncover the decisions that influenced the trajectory of their company including the successes as well as lessons learned.

Innovation, Investment, Technology Growth

Congressman Edward J. Markey 

Congressman Markey, dean of the Massachusetts Congressional delegation, will talk about the renewed emphasis in Washington on innovation and investment and on his own agenda for boosting technology growth nationally and in Massachusetts. 

Global Innovation Trends & Report from Davos

Kevin Steinberg, COO of the World Economic Forum USA

Kevin Steinberg will explore key insights on growth and innovation from the global perspective, and share highlights from the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, where global political and business leaders, media, academics, and heads of non-governmental organizations from around the world gather for a free exchange of ideas on the state of the economy and the future of innovation.

 

ECONOMIC OUTLOOK ROUNDTABLE – Where the Recovery will gain Speed in 2011

This looks like the year where the U.S. economy finally makes it out of the ditch. Tech spending is starting to rise and Massachusetts has momentum.  And, on February 3rd, the Labor Department recognized Boston as one of three cities leading the nation in job growth based on the strength of its information technology industry. Our panel of experts will explore the importance of our innovation economy and the risks and opportunities in growth.  How has innovation helped us?  What are our near-term prospects as a region and a nation?  What risks do our companies face, particularly as the job market loosens and CEOs face decisions about scaling their organizations?

·         Catherine L. Mann, visiting fellow, professor of economics at Brandeis University
