Networking  Breakfast is May 24

"What is The Innovation Collective?"

The Innovation Collective was founded  in 2013 with a dream to create a system that allowed for "normal people" to participate in the technology revolution that is creating the current and future wealth in the world. Four "Think Big Festivals", scores of "Fireside Chats" and hundreds of "Coffee and Concepts" later, Coeur d'Alene has seen over 40 new startups, hundreds of new jobs, $34 million in capital deployed and a 36,000 square foot Innovation Den housing over 50 companies developed out of an abandoned Elk's Lodge.

Nick Smoot,  Community Manager of the Collective, will describe the goals and vision of this diverse and forward thinking organization.
