  • Author and Health Coach (Laura Ingalls) – Equating skinny with healthy helps no one. How can we fix our health culture? I have an idea…
  • Technology Builder (Tom Baran) –  For centuries people have been intrigued by the idea of 3D imaging and media.  Will we ever see the dream become a reality?  How would this transform our everyday experience?
  • Biochemist (Kate Adamala) – We are building artificial cells. We use those synthetic cells to study how life in the Universe started, how modern biology works and how diseases develop. We look at creating true personalized medicine, and teleporting biology.

  • Lawyer and STEAM Evangelist (Emily Avant) – The tech world needs more girls and women like me, who love the arts and humanities but may have strayed from the traditional STEM path.
  • Public Realm Visioneer (Charles McKinney) – We can radically improve the health and beauty of cities by giving people permission to creatively improve public areas they choose.
  • Civic Innovator (Pitichoke Chulapamornsri) – How government can spend less and build more? Transforming the #MunicipalBonds market while increasing civic participation.
