Notional Details

The first HESN TechCon 2013 will take place on November 16 - 18, in Colonial Williamsburg, VA, and HESN will be graciously hosted by the College of William and Mary. HESN’s TechCon 2013 is a unique convening of academics, development experts, field practitioners and the private sector focused on innovative approaches to solution creation, testing, and scaling for international development. TechCon 2013 will showcase the innovations coming out of HESN’s Development Labs that have been produced both in the lab and with development beneficiaries through the Network.

Program Highlights: interactive sessions that aim to highlight new innovations and data from the Development Labs, the opportunity to learn from industry leaders, discuss development challenges with leading academics, “investing” in new solutions in the innovation marketplace, TEDTalk–style keynotes, small group challenge sessions, a “Shark Tank” pitch competition, and opportunities for networking and spontaneous “unconference” sessions.
