“Innovation Equals Jobs: Myth Versus Reality”, will be presented by Jack Savidge, founder & senior advisor of the von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement at UCSD. The current myth supported by politicians, economists, academics and budget policy makers is that more U.S. innovation will create the millions of jobs necessary to solve the unemployment problem. In this session, we examine where novel ideas come from and their journey to an innovation. Topics include the who is an entrepreneur, what is a job-creating innovation, the advisory and financial resources needed to nurture a start-up and the who, how and when a new enterprise transforms the innovation into a commercial reality. Participants will gain new knowledge to judge proposed economic turnaround policies and job creation. The lecture will be interactive with the attendees. Savidge is an entrepreneur and venture capitalist who has dedicated his career to business creation and innovation. In addition to his work with the von Liebig Center, he is the founding Chairman of The Proof of Concept Institute, Inc., a non-profit 501c3, assisting university and government initiatives to accelerate innovations through their scientists. Jack, was for 18 years an instructor in entrepreneurism and technology commercialization for UC San Diego Extension and is the author of books on marketing intelligence and entrepreneur mentoring.
