“What’s the Point? Utah’s Laboratory for Innovation” is a community talk exploring the development of the old Utah State Penitentiary site at Draper into an incubator for modern solutions. The event will take place at 4:00 p.m. in Silicon Slopes.

The intent is to bring Utah universities together on site to develop solutions to a variety of challenges faced by Utah residents across the state. What will that mean? Let’s find out in this talk sponsored by The Salt Lake Tribune and Rocky Mountain Power.

Attendees include Theresa Foxley, CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah, Jefferson Moss, Point Innovation District Project Manager and State Assemblyman, and James Campbell, Director of Innovation and Sustainability Policy at PacifiCorp/Rocky Mountain Power. Tribune renewable energy reporter Tim Fitzpatrick will moderate.
