2022 Annual Luncheon



Thursday, October 13, 2022 at 11:30 am (cst)
Avalon Manor Banquet Center-  3550 E Lincoln Hwy, Hobart, IN 

Presenting Sponsor: Purdue University Northwest


Together we have the power to cultivate a coordinated environment where ideas flourish, technologies emerge, and an aligned Midwestern hub is strategically created along the extended shores of Lake Michigan. Envision a powerful Greater South Shore where knowledge sparks an innovation ecosystem that stimulates productivity, global competitiveness, and economic strength.  Today’s innovation frontier has changed and Northwest Indiana’s role in connecting the broader ecosystem starts with the emergence of its own.

Author and venture capitalist Alexandre Lazarow will speak about the new playbook for innovation and startup success that has emerged from beyond Silicon Valley, the inspiring potential of an aligned ecosystem from Northern Indiana, Chicago, and Milwaukee, and what Northwest Indiana can learn from global entrepreneurs in this new frontier.  

We will also hear from the U.S. Economic Development Administration and experts in the innovation space who will share their advice and perspective about how Northwest Indiana can connect and support innovators along the Greater South Shore.

We have innovators, experts, and a vision. Join us to be part of the movement.
