Sign up for the TECHONOMY DETROIT CONFERECE today: WCC Students Receive $70 Off Standard Registration – Sign Up Before July 31, 2014

Event Name: Techonomy Detroit

Dates: September 15 & 16, 2014

On September 16th, Techonomy returns to Detroit for our third annual Techonomy Detroit conference. We will continue the series of conversations we began at our first Techonomy Detroit in 2012 on how technology can boost U.S. economic growth, job creation and urban revival.

Techonomy Detroit brings together leaders and thinkers from business, technology, government and academia to better understand how to move the U.S., and the world, into an urbanized, technologized, inclusive future.

Detroit’s travails symbolize issues faced by many American cities and to some extent the entire country. But this is also a city energetically seeking to revive itself. The birthplace of assembly-line manufacturing and technologized transportation, Detroit was once the innovation engine of the U.S. economy. There is no better place for a conversation on how our national priorities must change in a technologized economy. And as we learned the past two years, the Detroit community is committed to creative problem solving in ways few outsiders can appreciate. Extraordinary energies and opportunities are being unleashed.
