How to Leverage Public/Private Partnerships to Help Grow Your Business

Innovation is the life-blood of any company. Major challenges facing startups and growing businesses involve the associated costs related to research and development, technology, training and intellectual capital. Contemporary industry requires collaborative teams who have an appropriate, useful mix of technological skills and creative innovation to solve the complex, intricate, and often unexpected problems of today and tomorrow.

Using the newly opened Comcast Media and Technology Center as a case study, this session will explore how private ventures can partner with public institutions and universities to create a confluence of intellectual and creative expertise. The discussion will address how to foster environments that dynamically link people with complimentary skills, and how to develop leading-edge strategies and solutions that are empathetically driven, economically sustainable, environmentally responsible and, ultimately, lead to new innovations in the Rocky Mountain region and beyond.
