The annual i.c.stars iOpener conference brings together CIO’s, entrepreneurs, students, alumni of i.c.stars, and vendors to explore a technology-development topic of mutual interest.
The Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center leads this conference with a presentation on the role of innovation in driving regional GDP. CIOs and Entrepreneurs participate as table facilitators to discuss how to nurture “cultures of innovation”. The discussions seek to answer how IT organizations will invest in innovation in the coming year.
This year's iOpener considers what it takes to foster a “Culture of Innovation” within an IT organization specifically around Cloud. Participate in facilitated roundtable discussions where insights on these critical areas will be shared.
Learn what a wide range of companies are doing that’s innovative, what jobs are being created that didn’t exist before and how other companies of all sizes are recruiting staff with innovative DNA. Hear how the workforce is evolving and see how companies are training and, in some cases, retraining their employees to stay on the leading edge of their industries.
Don’t miss the opportunity to network with CIOs and entrepreneurs, to gather new ideas for your business and to learn about the emerging trends in workforce development.
