Sir Francis Bacon said that “knowledge is power.” The English philosopher wasn’t a manufacturer, but he’s credited with developing the scientific method, a systematic method of observation, measurement, experimentation, and testing. Without the efforts of thinkers like Bacon, and without modern manufacturing’s emphasis on continuous innovation, the world would look quite different today. But what will tomorrow be like, and who has the knowledge you need to power ahead of the competition?
For NYS manufacturers and technology companies, the New York State Innovation Summit offers an opportunity to learn from speakers who are deeply engaged with emerging trends. If you have a business to run or day-to-day operations to administer, it’s hard to find time to research and then reflect upon what the future may bring. At the Summit, however, you can gain competitive insights. You’ll also have an opportunity to forge connections with other innovative companies and NYSTAR-funded assets.
In-Person and On-Point
NYSTAR, Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation, meets annually and invites companies to come and learn more about New York State’s innovation ecosystem. After a year when in-person events were canceled because of COVID-19, the New York Summit is back with an in-person format. This year’s big event is scheduled for November 8th and 9th at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York, which has been safely hosting events since last summer.
When you join NYSTAR and FuzeHub at the New York Innovation Summit, you’ll gain exclusive access to what’s behind a robust two-day agenda with multiple tracks. You’ll learn about trends that are shaping manufacturing and technology – and before anyone else. From economic development in New York State to national trends, and from disruptive technologies to the Jeff Lawrence Innovation Fund, you’ll have the opportunity to focus on innovations that can help your business to compete and win.
