Business—especially that which is created and grown by entrepreneurs—is hugely impacted by technology. Everything from the way we buy a pizza to the dream of someday renting a hotel room in space—virtually all economic activity has been touched by the rise of technology. Some of it has improved life. Some, unfortunately, has not.

On Wednesday, Oct. 30, the University of Baltimore's Ampersand Institute for Words & Images will host a panel discussion on how technology is affecting business and the economy, as part of  its semester-long "Impact of Technology" series. The event will take place at 5:30 p.m. in the M. Scot Kaufman Auditorium in the William H. Thumel Sr. Business Center (home of the Merrick School of Business), 11 W. Mt. Royal Ave. It is free and open to the public.

Learn more about upcoming discussions in the Ampersand Institute's "Impact of Technology" series.

Further details about panelists, discussion outcomes, and so on, will be announced shortly. More information about the series is available by calling 410.837.6022 or sending an email to jcrooks@ubalt.edu.

The University of Baltimore is a member of the University System of Maryland and comprises the College of Public Affairs, the Merrick School of Business, the UB School of Law and the Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences.
