Innovation Summit Pasadena
On October 10, 2013, Christie Kweon and I represented Scripps College at Innovation Summit Pasadena, a Technology and Business conference in Pasadena. Our day started out with some really awful dead stop traffic from Claremont to Pasadena, meaning we unfortunately missed some of Bill Gross’s (of Idealab) opening speech, but the last part I did hear was absolutely fascinating. There seemed to be a theme at the summit of failure not being the end, but rather if you keep going you will become stronger. Go hard, and keep trying seemed to be what most of the speakers agreed on.
There were a variety of speakers ranging from design to science fields, but each had something to say about the growing tech industry and how innovation is thriving. The community was eager to learn, and the presenters were engaging, so although the event was around 8 hours, it seemed to blur by. There was a lunch in the middle where I met the Social Media intern for Mindshare (whose events I hope to be attending in the future), as well as many other cool entrepreneurs in the tech field. I’m glad I attended, for I learned some invaluable lessons about technology and business, as well as meet some very inspirational figures.
