Innovation has the power to transform lives, but it is neither easy nor does it occur overnight. Innovations come about from the efforts of a few individuals and then spread among many through the efforts of effective change agents, champions and knowledge brokers. Converting innovative ideas into practical and usable products and processes requires significant effort, resources and collaboration. The TECHJXN Innovation Summit is a venue to share your innovative ideas and learn from others on how to ideate, collaborate and proliferate innovations which improve the quality of education for everyone.
