Fort Wayne Mayor Graham Richard will kick off the Innovation Forum from 9-11 a.m. Monday, October 10 at IPFW, 2101 E. Coliseum Blvd.

The forum will feature Alan November, a leader in the use of educational technology. In 2001, November was named one of eight educators to provide leadership into the future by the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse. November’s speech will focus on “Creating New Cultures for 21st Century Learning.”

Innovation Forums are part of Mayor Richard’s “Innovation Initiative.” The forums allow the community to come together to explore innovative business ideas and provide a network of support for new business owners that will give Fort Wayne a competitive edge in technology.

The event will take place in the Science Building Room 168.
