Tullock Lectures presents Vivek Wadhwa

Thursday, October 28, 2010 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Arlington, School of Law, Rm 120

Governments all over the world have spent billions of dollars in trying to build clusters of innovation. Vivek Wadhwa will discuss why the vast majority of these efforts fail, proposing more realistic alternatives. Dr. Philip Auerswald, co‐editor of Innovations: Technology, Governance, Globalization (MIT Press) and Professor of Public Policy @ GMU, will introduce Mr. Wadhwa.

Mr. Wadhwa is a scholar and technology entrepreneur based in California. He helped build Seer Technologies into a $118 million publicly traded company and then launched Relativity Technologies. Forbes.com has named Mr. Wadhwa a “Leader of Tomorrow.” Fortune Magazine named Relativity one of the 25 “coolest” companies in the world.
