Seattle is a hub for the dynamic hi-tech industry, with eCommerce in particular driving much of the city’s economy. New methods through which to take advantage of efficiencies are becoming widely accepted, as access to high-speed Internet is becoming more common. With eCommerce, software, and Internet all under the umbrella, what are the growing sectors in hi-tech industry? How are non-technology firms becoming "hi-tech?" How has the recession affected the way hi-tech companies identify, reach, and compel consumers? Join a discussion with Chicago Booth alumni and professionals in the hi-tech industry in Seattle who will share their expertise and perspective on the current hi-tech world, and hear their take on the future of the industry.
