It’s our mission to make this region a top three innovation economy by 2023, so we’re redefining what’s possible and helping to shape the future through ideation, collaboration, and innovation. Join us in celebrating the veteran companies and startups, the CEOs and CFOs who are lighting the way and inspiring us all.
