America: home to Apple Inc., Google, Amazon, and a slew of other powerful and innovative companies that rule the world of technology. The United States can no doubt claim many of the globe’s pioneering big businesses, but there’s also evidence the country faces declining rates of entrepreneurship and ranks far behind many other nations in educating its young people.

In the race to “win the future,” are we putting too much emphasis on app development and social media platforms instead of investing in biological research and robotics? Is there a way to combine these fields to create meaningful tools for society? Join us for a conversation about what the United States is actually creating and how we fare compared to the rest of the world.
