Empowering Entrepreneurs in the Digital Economy

Technology and globalization are powerful tools that can connect Americans to economic opportunity. Individual entrepreneurs—using innovations that were only science fiction even 10 years ago—are starting businesses that are changing the world. One hundred-year-old industrial buildings now house 3-D printing companies. Farmers are using sensors and tablets to irrigate their crops. American businesses are using platforms to sell to a growing consumer class across the world.

Join a panel discussion featuring Dartmouth Tuck School of Business Dean Matthew J. Slaughter, University of Virginia Professor of History Philip Zelikow, and Errik Anderson, Co-Founder, President, and CEO of Compass Therapeutics and Dartmouth alumnus, to discuss the many ways that entrepreneurs can and are realizing the potential of technology to ensure that everyone finds a meaningful place in the new economy. Dean Slaughter and Professor Zelikow are both members of Rework America and co-authors of America’s Moment: Creating Opportunity in the Digital Age.
