About this Event

One War—Two Fronts

The current global crisis has us fighting a two-sided war. We’re fighting for our health, in the grips of a terrible pandemic. We’re also fighting for the economy, doing what we can to support small businesses and fight waves of unemployment.

But the battle isn’t between our health and our economy—the battle is between us and the virus. And as we battle on both fronts, RIoT is brainstorming new ways for us to fight back.

In this webinar, RIoT will invite experts in the medtech and economic development space to share how they’re fighting for BOTH our health and our economy—not one or the other.

Hear from experts like:

Luke Marshall, PhD., Founder & CEO of VitalFlo

Denny Lewis, Director, North Carolina Defense Technology (DEFTECH) Transition Office

Veronica Creech, Equitable Economic Development at City of Raleigh Municipal Government

Tom Snyder, Executive Director, RIoT

Rachael Newberry, RIoT Accelerator Program Director, RIoT
