Stream 2017: What We’ll Be Discussing if Trump Wins
Governments play as big a role in innovation as entrepreneurs, startups and tech giants do. Whether through direct investment in pure research, tax breaks for promising tech sectors, trade policies that affect whole industries, or regulations and laws that can either help or hinder companies, the public sector and its elected leaders have a huge impact on the development of innovative solutions to problems big and small. So what will happen in our industries and the world beyond if Donald Trump wins the U.S. Presidency next month? (If you think it can’t happen, just look at the Brexit vote!) Since no candidate in American history has said so much yet revealed so little, we’re going to have to guess. Let’s get together for a lively, fun and at times scary debate about what impact President The Donald might have on innovation, technology, and the problems and opportunities facing our industries and the planet.
