EmTech@MIT

description

Innovation in business and technology no longer takes place when a lone scientist screams “Eureka!” in a dusty lab.  Corporations are turning to centers of research and launching their own labs where the expressed mission is for diverse groups of interdisciplinary experts to collaborate on ideas that transform our world.

Our panel will share stories of their decades of real-world wisdom in leading teams to cutting-edge breakthroughs and frustrating dead ends, and what makes labs such a powerful and challenging work environment.

Moderator: Jason Pontin, Editor in Chief and Publisher, Technology Review

Panelists:  Lili Cheng, General Manager, Microsoft’s Future Social Experiences (FUSE) Labs; Pamela McNamara, President, Cambridge Consultants; Nitin Parekh, Director of Business Development, PARC; Alex Wong, Managing Director, D.E. Shaw & Co. L.P.;  Head of Venture Capital, D.E. Shaw Group
