Will it alter our view of the world? Check! Will it improve efficiency? Check! Will it improve the lives of people? Check! Will it open up vast new opportunities? Check! Will it make money? Uh, I hope so.

Join us at E|SPACES Cool Springs as Michael Burcham addresses this question on Thursday, May 10, at 4:30 pm for networking, food and drink and a presentation and Q & A with Michael. (RSVP here) There is probably no one in the country more qualified to help us answer the question, “Will your shining object make money?” than Michael Burcham.
