"InnovateUM 2018 to Envision Missoula's Innovation Ecosystem"

April 23, 2018View for printing

Blurring the lines between the city, University and other sectors, this year's innovateUM will explore an emerging opportunity to imagine and nurture a vibrant innovation ecosystem along Missoula's stretch of the Clark Fork River.

On April 25, guest speakers from Finland's Espoo Innovation Garden, Aalto Design Factory and Startup Sauna, as well as Google, Stanford and ClassPass will help facilitate community design labs and share bright lights from their communities that have successfully nurtured place-based, cross-sector innovation ecosystems.

Through interactive breakout sessions and facilitated design sprints, innovateUM's 230 attendees and 35 local, national and international speakers, facilitators and guest designers will collaborate in envisioning Missoula's own innovation corridor.

This year's innovateUM is a collaboration between the UM Office of Research and Creative Scholarship and its Broader Impacts Group (BIG), as well as the City of Missoula in partnership with Blackfoot and the Finlandia Foundation of Montana.
