Dear E100:
 
Ever been to a rumble? It is not a workshop…not a conference…certainly not a convention. Not even ‘Summit’ is an adequate term. It is a happening – when the best in the world interact for mutual advantage. It could be called an Olympics; but many would note the competition between countries. In the end, it is what they do TOGETHER to advance the vision of what might be possible. It IS an Olympics where the best and brightest are brought together to create a fusion to catapult forward the innovation capability of the world.
 
Held under the theme, "The New, Smarter Innovation Economy", and under the support of OECD, Inter-American Development Bank and many multinationals, the Summit will share the world’s most meaningful ideas, designs, enterprises, and innovations transforming the future of technology, communication, health, education, lifestyle, energy, and cities. Home to one of the world’s top innovation ecosystems, Boston will welcome the World Summit, thereby staging the world’s most remarkable living lab of dreamers, doers, and drivers from 50 nations.
 
You were selected as an E100 to be featured on the Global Knowledge Leadership Map for 3 reasons: competence, commitment to demonstrated collaborative values and standards of excellence. Collectively, you represent an Innovation Olympics Team; so please join us!
 
1he WHAT?
We’ve all seen the explosion of innovation conferences. Many focus on technological advances; others focus on the transformation of cities. Others are dedicated specifically to social networking, mobile computing, the front- (or back-) end of innovation and more. Few use DESIGN as the heart of innovating our future.
 
Prologue:
Frontier of the Smarter Innovation Economy: 3 days of innovation studios, theaters, boardrooms and speed-dating to engage with global entrepreneurs, designers, and executives to strike new partnerships that will alter the way you learn and live... create and innovate... invest and lead. An agenda over two years in the making with unique formats – including the use of art, music and culture – to explore our future. For more details

1he WHY?
You have already received some of the background how the case was made for Boston. Check out the E100 Alert: Boston Innovation Landscape to get a sense of the secret sauce that makes Massachusetts the most innovative in the world. Whatever you do, be sure to watch the Innovation Tour Video created by the Italian executives. When you plan your visit, if there are specific people/organizations you want to meet, let us know. No promises, but we would give it the ENTOVATION go!
 
1he WHEN?
For those E100 who arrive early for the Summit, we will meet the evening of the 24th and continue conversations throughout the 25th. We have plans for an event the evening of the 25th and then WISE 2012 will begin on the 26th-28th. Hopefully, some will be able to stay through the weekend to enjoy some of the tourist treasures of our City.
