    There is hardly a more globally diverse city than New York. Since before Ellis Island welcomed immigrants to the United States, New York has been a melting pot of extraordinary life and vitality. In an era of dynamic globalization, how can New York reap expanding economic rewards for its diverse population through the active process of global entrepreneurship? Are there steps that can be taken to build upon the power of New York's diversity? Join the discussion of these questions and more with the expert panel.

    Innovate New York:
    This is the first event in the Innovate New York series of panel discussions that will explore why New York is not widely known as a hub of innovation, despite its acknowledged leadership in many fields. Examining the role of innovation across fields from finance to arts and culture, this series will convene leaders in science, technology, finance, and business with the public to discuss New York's strengths, opportunities and challenges.
