On May 12th, at Lehigh University’s Zoellner Arts Center in Bethlehem, PA, more than 600 technology entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors, educators, and business leaders will converge to network, learn, and celebrate the success of what is now a thriving tech community. That’s when the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania hosts its annual i xchange (short for ‘idea exchange’), the region’s premier business networking event.
I xchange keynoter Joseph Michelli, Ph.D., will address how “Innovation Leads Transformation.” Dr. Michelli will explore the critical importance of creativity and innovation for delivering customer value and creating business opportunities. According to Dr. Michelli, abundance can lull business leaders into complacency. In strong economic times, leaders can prop up bad ideas with money. Conversely, scarcity can drive creativity.
