Event Details:

Today, New York City possesses all the disparate ingredients necessary to take command of the world’s rapidly developing HCx3DP marketplace. Over the last two and a half centuries, we---as a progressive polity---have regularly gained financial, social, political and hegemonic advantages from “disruptive” technologies. Regardless of their provenance, we have seized tech breakthroughs---from the steamboat to the linotype to high-speed Internet---to create and command new empires of one kind or another.

Now, HCx3DP---Healthcare Multiplied By 3D Printing---has begun to disrupt business-as-usual across the entire spectrum of our “unhealthy” Healthcare system. What we don’t enjoy NOW is the proactive public policy---whether driven by DIY grassroots activism, C-Suite self-interest, public/private partnership synergies or governmental foresight---required to create the Planet’s HCx3DP Industrial-Segment Cluster HQ HERE. This roundtable will examine ways and means to assure NYC attains the dominant and dynamic position---via a sustainable HCx3DP ecosystem---that can be ours in this key 21C industrial segment.

Now is the time for City players in every sector at this new HCx3DP intersection to join together in commonweal. Our first strategic goal should be to foster an effective HCx3DP Leadership Community here in Gotham. (AND, we invite wide and gainful participation in this novel space by forward-thinking “Honorary NYC Citizens” everywhere: come share the attributes of our HCx3DP Cluster Initiative.) Ultimately, we seek to help coalesce and grow a dynamic Cluster Community that---among other commerce and common-good betterments---will help to (Re)Generate (Middle-Class) Jobs in New York City.


Here are some of the questions, challenges and provocations around which we will organize our Roundtable give-and-take:

· In building a powerful, empowering and effective Cluster Community, what can we learn from other successful NYC Clusters? (Think finance, media, design, fashion, etc.)

· What gurus, leaders and mentors---and from which disciplines---should we seek to involve and imbed in our HCx3DP Ecosystem?

· To advance our Cluster building, how should we foster the widest diversity of appropriate interests and inspirations? (And, what’s “appropriate?”)

· In our age of the tech-engined grassroots and citizen-sci ‘preneurs, what are the best means to empower non-traditional HCx3DP players in the traditionally conservative Healthcare industry?

· If you could choose one major partnering player and/or organization (NOT necessarily from Economic Development) from each tier of government (Borough, City, State and Federal), who/what would you target to "recruit" for our HCx3DP Community?

· Which non-government participants (non-profits, foundations, public/private partnerships, etc.), might make the most powerful HCx3DP team members

· How can we most effectively reach out to---and involve---non-NYC entities (from any sector of our diverse society) for mutual benefit? Should non-US participants be welcomed?

· Should we form an official organization (non-profit, B-Corp, for-profit) to structure this HCx3DP Community/Cluster/Ecosystem effort? Or, rely on a more informal organizing entity (e.g., a Meetup infrastructure)?

· What three steps would you plan---within our HCx3DP Community---to make certain that we alert, attract and influence ‘preneurs and/or startups to come join-in our Ecosystem---for mutual benefit---here in NYC?

· If you could choose one resource to help assure the success of our prospective Cluster-HQ creation, what would it be and why?

HCx3DP Meetups WEEK Agenda:

HCx3DP Meetups WEEK is a multi-day series of HCx3DP ("Healthcare Multiplied By 3D Printing") panels to be presented in New York City. We've designed our WEEK Meetups as educational, investigatory, networking and solution-developing forums. They are constructed as moderated, peer-to-peer discussions (among topic-experts, with public and participatory audiences).

Our WEEK Meetups are focused on key segments of the rapidly building New York City and State HCx3DP Community. We're helping to coalesce such Community with events like these. Our suite of WEEK Meetups is designed to foster an on-going, "Big Tent" gathering-in of appropriate---and proactive---players at the ever-growing intersection of Healthcare and 3D Printing.
