The Entrepreneurs: Artists of Innovation

Albert Einstein once said, “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” Today, entrepreneurs are driving change in business, redefining how we interact, and creating new opportunities for better lives around the world. The intersection of imagination, risk-taking, motivation and talent of the entrepreneur is fueling dramatic change in all sectors of business and across all parts of modern society. Join three special guests - Jerry Kent, Chairman and CEO of TierPoint and Cequell III; Matt Crisp, President and CEO of Benson Hill Biosystems; and Emily Lohse-Busch, Executive Director of Arch Grants – for a conversation moderated by Sam Fiorello, COO, Danforth Plant Science Center, about the art of innovation and how our region is changing by embracing the entrepreneur.
