Do you want to hear all about the comeback of Manufacturing? The Advanced Manufacturing & Materials panel discussions will focus on many important themes related to recent and ongoing innovations as well as government policies in the broad area of manufacturing, both in the US and globally. To learn more, please join the panelists at TiECon East scheduled for April 27th & 28th at the Westin Hotel, Waltham, MA.

Sponsors to this event are Jeavio, Blue Cloud Ventures, Analytix, Desai Foundation, Merrill, ArentFox Schiff, Bank of America, Innospark and partners are MIT Sloan CIO Symposium and Uplers.

Our track chair Anil Khurana has been pulling together a number of accomplished speakers to bring this topic to the forefront at the TieCon. The keynote speakers and panelists representing start-ups, corporates, investors, policymakers, and researchers will address themes such as smart manufacturing and robotics, advanced materials, additives manufacturing, energy transition (energy storage, hydrogen, small modular reactors, smart grids etc.), sustainable manufacturing (including solutions for hard-to-abate sectors), US manufacturing revival, skills building including supplementing higher education with vocational skills development, impacting the built environment, attracting companies to MA (e.g., in semicon, contract manufacturing, and other value chains) and others.

There will be topics of great interest and opportunity for entrepreneurs, investors, large and small companies and employees, educational institutes, and government. The Inflation Reduction Act and CHIPS Act involve funding of more than $400B in these areas – come help TiE-Boston and partners and stakeholders further catalyze this opportunity for the Boston and New England areas!

The 3 discussion panels are :

Smart Manufacturing & Robotics :

Automation and digitization of manufacturing are creating new opportunities and business models for innovative and highly efficient approaches to manufacturing.
