Furman’s Leadership Through Innovation and Entrepreneurship:

AI and the Future of Business

At The Hill Institute’s thought leadership forum, Advantage Greenville, we’re bringing together leaders from Google, dotflo, and Build Carolina to discuss AI and the future of business.

Following a 7:30-8:15 am networking breakfast, you’ll be treated to an engaging series of conversations featuring one of the leads from Google’s AI Accelerator Performance Team, Patrick Musau, Ph. D; Co-Founders Spencer Tate and Nemath Ahmed of the AI-based productivity platform, dotflo; and Lelia King, Executive Director of the region’s leading code school, Build Carolina.

We’ll cover the “state of the union” for our local tech community, have a robust panel discussion moderated by the Executive Director of Furman University’s Center for Innovative Leadership, Garrett Stern, and share a few special announcements.

Enjoy complimentary breakfast and networking with Furman alumni, parents, friends, and community business and civic leaders.
