ABOUT

Now in its fourth year, the Cascadia Innovation Corridor Conference brings together business, academic, and government leaders from both sides of the border to explore new strategies for the region to come together, maximize our shared competitive advantages, and elevate our global economic position. It’s your chance to engage with regional, national and international experts on how we can work together to strengthen Cascadia’s position as an international hub for innovation, spur job creation, and enhance our already high quality of life. The 2019 Cascadia Innovation Corridor Conference will:

1) Bring the vision of Cascadia to life to cement a shared understanding of Cascadia & its potential
2) Showcase the work of the Steering Committee to illustrate continued progress/momentum toward 2021 & beyond
3) Connect those interested in focus areas to solicit participation & inspire action

Those working on these initiatives and other innovative partnerships are committed to continuing to share best practices; enhance the region’s physical and intellectual infrastructure; create exciting new opportunities for young people in both countries; and bring the benefits of technology developments to underserved populations. The 2019 Cascadia Innovation Corridor Conference is an important step in that process.
