Keynote Panel | FAANGS Rocking Your World

The technology innovation wave led by Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google have changed the economy, work and ways of life in major ways.  They bring enormous benefit and opportunity, while accelerating disruptive change in the place called home.  In every community, that wave is challenging leaders and citizens to redefine their value, adapt and build a different future.  In this panel, we look for insights to help us better understand a world in flux.

Panel | A Tale of Two Economies

The explosive growth of digital technology has had an unintended impact: the splitting of “the economy” into two economies.  In one, workers find good jobs in growth industries, because they add big value for their employers.  They live in prosperous neighbor that offer attractive retail, strong schools and rewarding social and cultural institutions.  In the other economy, workers are stuck in menial jobs that generate only small value for their employers, which keeps their wages low.  They live paycheck-to-paycheck in places with poor housing, limited and costly retail and little in the way of culture. What are cities, counties and towns doing to face this challenge?  What policies can help reduce the divide and re-unify the place called home?

  • Faith Knutsen, Director, Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, Ohio University

13:45

Panel | How to Connect the Countryside

In the land of the Tech Giants, high-capacity, reliable broadband connectivity is essential.  But the telecommunications business model still denies a competitive level of service to most rural communities, because of their low population density.  In this panel, experts describe little-known network funding strategies available to American communities and invite the audience to describe similar opportunities in other nations.

The Drucker Institute is working to design, prototype and implement a holistic, integrated system that will help transform South Bend, Indiana, in to a City of Lifelong Learning. The project is undertaken with the government of South Bend, its library system, school corporation and other key stakeholders in business, labor and education. Part digital and part physical, the system will take what is currently a highly fragmented set of learning resources, identify those that have proven to be most effective, integrate them more efficiently and make them accessible and inviting for the entire South Bend community.

Panel | When Tech Giants Come to Town

In the past two years, tech giants have gone shopping for locations for their operations and communities that can serve as test beds for development of software-driven solutions to challenges from energy efficiency to mobility. They bring jobs, economic growth, expertise and scale to communities eager for economic development. They can also create controversy over everything from gentrification and housing costs to data privacy and financial incentives. A panel of experts weighs the pros and cons of having the tech giants come to town, the issues it creates, and how their communities seek to resolve those issues. 

Speakers include:

  • Victor Hoskins, Director, Arlington Economic Development
  • Mark Thomas, Senior Vice President, NYC Economic Development Corporation
  • Kristina VernerVice President, Innovation, Sustainability & Prosperity, Waterfront Toronto
