Event Details

Is entrepreneurial innovation worthy of a Nobel Prize? Consider this scenario. A clever team collaborates globally to build an enterprise from scratch based on an established technology to save lives and transform healthcare. Their business model is named the 'Triple Play', leveraging the concepts of differentiation and value cubed throughout all hospital departments to optimize care delivery.

This month will feature the technologist who is striving to make this dream a reality through skillful implementation of RFID systems. He'll show how his venture can ride the defining mega-trends of our era such as AI, Big Data, Cloud Computing, and the Internet of Things. And within this engineering framework is his compelling personal story focused on identifying new opportunities and creating results beyond those purely economic, a journey of discovery you won't want to miss.
