Driver of Economic Growth: Innovation

This week, Technology Today focuses on Innovation. Innovation has long been sited as a key driver of the US Economy. We’ll take a look at how the current recession is affecting innovation, and what we can do as a country to better foster & fund innovation.

Some may not know that there is a huge community of venture capitalists, angel investors as well as public sector and community-based economic development professionals working towards these two goals – fostering and funding innovation.

We’ll speak with Jim A. Jaffe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Association of Seed and Venture Funds on this topic.

We’ll also look at the role tech associations play in supporting the tech sector’s efforts to innovate. And the role they play in encouraging our elected officials to understand the impact the advancement of technology, research & development and new product commercialization have on our economic security.
