How to Attend, Support and Engage with Austin Tech Future Leaders : IEEE-USA FUTURE LEADERS FORUM

Early Bird Prices Extended Through May 20th! 




Attend: Convince Your Boss Toolkit

We realize that funding may be an issue for many attendees and would appreciate any assistance you could provide, but I wanted to point out our “Convince Your Boss Toolkit” that may be of value in helping our members attend the event (These tools can easily be modified to assist students in acquiring funding from their schools, as well).

Support: Patron Opportunities

Know of a company that wants to support the workforce of tomorrow?  We are looking for patrons to help us in our quest to help us in our mission of helping our attendees become more agile in order to succeed in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment.  

Engage: Full program details

In addition to inspiring speakers (e.g. Steve Sasson, Maxim Jago) and four interactive panels (LEAD, EMPOWER, ADAPT, and DESIGN), we will also have a variety of sessions that should be of great value as attendees seeking to hone their leadership skills and empower themselves to be valuable assets to any employer (e.g.Steve Skarkes’ Leadership session and Christiane Michaelis’ “Thinking outside the Box” session).

Great learning opportunities will be balanced with fun evening activities (the Bullock State History Museum, Scholz Garten) and interactive sessions (Improv, Battledecks, Chef Patrick Stark Keynote Performance). 

New Member Spotlight : Austin Technology Incubator

ATI named recipient of IN² clean tech award

IN2 Channel PartnerATI will share award with Rice, Texas A&M and Texas State to accelerate clean tech companies for IN² incubator.

The Austin Technology Incubator is among the recipients of awards under the 2017 IN² Channel Partner Awards Program, announced on January 16, 2018, by the Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN²).

IN² awarded more than $1 million in support of eight projects and nineteen organizations to address gaps in clean-energy technology development and commercialization.

The Austin Technology Incubator grant was awarded to ATI in conjunction with Rice University, the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station Clean Energy Incubator, and Texas State University to collaborate on a series of programs and initiatives that will help catalyze the next generation of cleantech entrepreneurs and serve as a feeder to the IN² program. Referred to as “The IN2Bound Cleantech Accelerator Program,” these programs will educate entrepreneurs and accelerate startups, and connect them to a network of experts to provide technical support and mentorship.

The value ATI provides its member companies sets itself apart from many incubators in the US. From access to capital sources to access to interns and other advisors, our participation in the incubator community allowed Xeris to quickly become integrated into the network of resources within the state and the local community. Our membership in and presence at ATI has been instrumental in the rapid and successful development of Xeris from an early-stage company to a clinical-stage company. – Yash Sabharwal, COO/CFO

CESMII GC Regional Seminar at the UT Austin on March 21, 2018

A new industrial revolution is taking place. At the forefront of this new industrial revolution the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII) is helping manufacturers of all sizes, and across all industry sectors, in bringing together information and operations technologies built on the open SM PlatformTM to create radically smarter, more productive, and energy-efficient production systems and domestic supply chains across American industry, while empowering workers from the plant floor to the C-Suite with actionable information for real-time decision-making. This transformation aims to unlock the true potential of our people, processes, and technology by transcending barriers of cost, risk and accessibility. We welcome you to attend this seminar to learn more about CESMII’s key strategic objectives, near-term technology roadmap and how you can participate in (a) advancing the four paradigms underpinning Smart Manufacturing—Business Practices, Enabling Technologies, Platform Infrastructure, and Workforce Development; and (b) developing and deploying your own products and solutions built on the revolutionary SM PlatformTM ecosystem in your industrial settings to achieve new cross-industry benchmarks for radically improving safety, energy efficiency, environmental sustainability, operational performance, and economic productivity. Let us join forces to advance America’s Next Industrial Revolution.
