Fort Worth is home to an increasing number of technology-based companies, a trend sure to increase as the new Fort Worth Medical School opens and grows to maturity.
The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History wants to help entrepreneurs find their place in that world. The museum will host the Rising Tide Initiative Launch and Panel Discussion at the museum Friday, April 28 from 6-8 p.m.
The Rising Tide Initiative’s mission is to enhance the Fort Worth and Tarrant County entrepreneurship, innovation and technology community through the introduction of a vibrant, collaborative technology ecosystem.
The panel discussion’s focal point is Emerging Technologies: Meeting Our Future.
Panel members include:
– Dr. Julienne Greer: Greer is a UT-Arlington theater arts professor working with the University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute (UTARI) in the field of social robotics and performance. She will bring her robot NAO who can, among other things, recite Shakespeare.
– Dr. Doug Roberts: Roberts is chief technology officer at the Museum of Science and History, and will speak to the increasing role of technology in museums.
– Kevin Grace: Grace, with the Rising Tide Initiative, works with innovative technology companies that include artificial intelligence, cloud computing and software as a service. After founding multiple technology businesses, he now focuses on helping entrepreneurs connect the dots through Catalyst Partners, a local investment firm.
The Rising Tide Initiative Launch and Panel Discussion is a free event open to the public.
