We posed the question of why Indiana technology and business professionals should attend TechPoint’s Innovation Summit and a few other questions to three Hoosier experts. These three individuals are at the top of their game and they also happen to be presenters on panels for the event (so they know a little something about the valuable nuggets of business knowledge they plan to espouse).

The video speaks for itself. Visit the TechPoint website for more information about Innovation Summit. There you can download the full event agenda with the topics of all four breakout sessions and the participating panelists; find out about the “Funding Innovation” plenary panel; and which venture capital, angel and seed funding firms are scheduled to attend the “Capital Connection” venture networking event.

You won’t want to miss the keynote address from iconoclast technology author Nicholas Carr. Carr is famous for his controversial articles “Does IT Matter?” and asking the question “Is Google making us stupid?” in his new book The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains. Agree or disagree with him, Carr makes us think – and that’s the first step towards innovation.

Of course, one of the best parts about Innovation Summit is the “Innovation Exhibition” trade show floor where you can browse booth after booth after booth filled with new technologies and business opportunities. Make sure you have a healthy supply of business cards, make note of the #Summit10 Twitter hashtag, and prepare yourself for Indiana’s largest assembly of technology professionals and entrepreneurs.
