Innovation continues to drive new business models in traditional industries such as transportation and hospitality. Bill of materials change quickly to reflect higher efficacy and lower cost for key components, such as chips and sensors. We are tantalized with mind boggling products that reside in our bodies, homes, offices, schools, cars and the community. Creating “smart-everything” drives the need for innovators to expand the quality and reach of their global networks. That is why we are delighted to welcome our newest member, the International Trade Administration of the Department of Commerce and to feature early stage companies pioneering connected vehicle technologies.

I-Hub members provide useful software you can access, links to government sponsored IP toolkits, current events editorialized on blogs and video presentations of corporate innovation leaders. The 2015 event roster grows with more events in China, advanced materials and always offers peer level sessions on technology breakthroughs offering attendees current knowledge and new business development opportunities. We hope to see you at one of these compelling gatherings.
