In addition to exploring economic forecasts from around the world and their likely impact on the U.S. and UK economies, speakers will also examine current conditions in the U.S. and PNW region and expand on the venture capital environment, including its opportunities and challenges. Bringing it into Washington state’s backyard, presenters will review the local economy and opportunities and risks that businesses might anticipate in 2018.
