The Juneau Economic Development Council is preparing for its 10th annual “Innovation Summit.” Normally the gathering is held in person, but due to the pandemic, this year’s conference will be held online. Even so, JEDC’s executive director, Brian Holst, says this spirit of competition is alive and well at this year’s summit in which businesses will pitch ideas and even win prizes. JEDC is also a partner in a statewide student robotics program, which also encourages entrepreneurship and innovation.
