About this Summit

The Northern New Jersey Chapter is partnering with the New Jersey Institute of Technology Enterprise Development Center to bring you an exciting half-day professional development learning event. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore a variety of topics. Breakout session topics include:

  • Augmented Reality
    Learning and Training is changing.  New tools are available that makes training more immersive and instructive.  This breakout session explores what opportunities lie in front of the next generation of training.  How can trainers and organizations get involved, avoid costly dead ends and what are the hurdles to overcome. In this workshop, you will:     
    • Explore the opportunities to use augmented reality in training
    • Learn whether and how to get involved in augmented reality
    • Become aware of hurdles to overcome in order to get involved

  • The Importance and Perils of Social Capital in Innovation Ecosystems
    Innovation ecosystems, such as incubators and accelerators, offer their members a “critical mass” of social capital including potential collaborators, vendors, and customers.  Social capital is crucial to startup’s survival, but startups that do not engage an ecosystem’s social capital would be better off not being in the ecosystem at all.  Once the startup realizes revenue, achieving profit will require converting the tacit knowledge of social capital into explicit knowledge, such as standard operating procedures.  We illustrate these dynamics, and how the entrepreneur can navigate from startup inception to growth. 
    In this workshop, you will learn about: 

    • How to maximize the benefits to your venture of being in an incubator or regional cluster.
    • Behaviors that lead to successful entrepreneurship, and their sequencing.
    • Strategies with long-term positive impact on your venture.
  • Micro-learning
    Micro-learning: Training today’s employee- “teach them the way you reach them”-Using a “TV-commercial” communication model to accelerate learning.

    As a result of attending this workshop, you will 
    • Learn what is micro-learning and how and where to use it
    • Learn how micro-learning accelerates knowledge transfer
    • Learn how to maximize the benefits of micro-learning
    • Learn the best practices for design and development       

    • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
