“Self Care: Food, Thought, Time” | 5:45 – 6:30 PM (Sachuest)

Challenge your current approach to self-care habits. Rather than seeing the “self-care shoulds” as nuisances or obstacles to your otherwise productive day, learn simple, implementable strategies to leverage them for greater wellbeing and sustained professional growth. Led by Katie McDonald. @Bnourished

“Disrupt: The Game of Business Model Innovation ” | 5:45 – 6:30 PM

Engage, play, and derive new innovations as Josh Daly of Small Business Development Corporation leads a demonstration of the new game “Disrupt.”

“The Promise and Pitfalls of Outsourcing Technology Development” | 6:40 – 7:30 PM (Assembly)

If technology is your secret sauce, can it really be entrusted to a third-party? Offshore development holds great promise, but there are horror stories as well. Hear from Dave Durfee, founder of Bay Computer and adjunct professor at Brown University, and Aidan Petrie, founding partner of NEMIC (New England Medical Innovation Center) and co-founder of Ximedica, as they offer a primer based on decades of experience. Moderated by Thorne Sparkman, Managing Director of the Slater Fund.
