MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge Presents "Big Ideas, Big Solutions - How Can We Solve More Big Problems?"
CAMBRIDGE, MA, Feb 27, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
The MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge will host an Innovation Series
Event, "Big Ideas, Big Solutions - How can we solve more big
problems " on Wednesday, March 13th.
Following the lead of MIT Technology Review's issue of "Big Ideas,
Big Solutions" issue, this event brings together an impressive panel
including Jason Pontin, the editor-in-chief of MIT Technology Review
and Brian Bergstein, the deputy editor.
Do you believe that it's time for innovation to stop focusing on ways
to gain more followers and likes and to discover once again what it
means to make dreams reality The "big problems" of ten years ago
(hunger, poverty, malaria, climate change, cancer, and the diseases
of old age) still exist today and it seems that innovators have lost
sight of finding the "big solutions." This event celebrates modern
day men and women who still believe in thinking big and finding faith
in technological innovation.
This event will feature a panel that will discuss their own big ideas
and how they believe they are still possible and can change the
world. These experts are committed to their careers, to Big Ideas and
to Big Dreams. They will challenge you to think beyond what is
happening now and to imagine how you can affect change in the future.
