NH Business Leaders Discuss Global Innovation

Monday, November 21, 2022 11:30 AM | Tim Horgan (Administrator)

MANCHESTER/PORTSMOUTH – Everyday universities are partnering with companies around the world, and right here in New Hampshire, to drive innovation and spur economic growth. Through these partnerships, businesses utilize the amazing research of universities to create new products, medical innovations, and more for the betterment of society. Three New Hampshire business leaders will join Dr. Ashley Stevens after his presentation for a panel discussion of how these partnerships benefit everyone.

On December 1st at 6:00 pm, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire will bring together industry leaders from the state and region to share insights on the little understood sector of university partnerships. Julie Lenzer, Chief Innovation Officer at ARMI, Andrew Share, Managing Partner at Nixon Peabody, and Marc Eichenberger, Associate VP and Chief Business and Innovation Officer at UNH Innovation, will share their local insights on this global sector. They will amplify the remarks made by Dr. Ashley Stevens, a proven leader in the field, and demonstrate how effective partnerships are moving the NH and global economy forward.

“Bringing together key voices from the New Hampshire technology sector creates a unique opportunity for discussions on global business,” said Tim Horgan, WACNH Executive Director. “Many people here in NH do not realize the extensive global connections that the business community fosters and how these partnerships drive the NH economy. I am excited to learn from these great leaders about the ways in which university connections with the business community have led to substantial innovations over the years.”

People from across the state will benefit from this engaging discussion on this $41 billion industry, regardless of their background. Those already working in this space will undoubtedly find new connections, as well as those who are interested in starting a career in technology. Anyone not working in the field will find out more about the critical innovations (Google, the seatbelt, insulin, and more) that have improved the lives of countless billions of people around the world. The pre-event reception begins at 5:00 pm and the event itself kicks off at 6:00 pm.
