About Agents of Ingenuity

Agents of Ingenuity is based on the success of the pilot ‘Engines of Ingenuity Summit’ at the 2014 IngenuityFest.

The focus is Cleveland as a globally competitive city for innovation and manufacturing, with an emphasis on the viewpoint of creative professionals. Structured as unlikely conversations between representatives from big business, small start-ups, the creative community and academia, our program will continue to grow with evening cocktail discussions, social hacks and a larger Agents of Ingenuity Summit – stay tuned!

As part of our mission to engender the flow of ideas, we compliment our live conversations and summit with podcasts, creating a year-round network of the people and ideas driving our region forward. We work in partnership with Design Lab High School, a STEM and project-based learning institution, as part of an emerging program in recording technology for students. The shows feature interviews with innovators based in Northeast Ohio, as well as ingenious representatives from beyond. Content promotes our sponsors, local businesses and other partners, and ties our community together through a permanent archive. To learn more about Agents @ Design Lab ECHS, click here.

Agents of Ingenuity is made possible through additional support from Thompson Hine LLP and Blue Technologies.
