Panel Discussion

E-Textiles Business and Economics Impacts – The Real World of Product Development


This panel discussion features thought leaders and entrepreneurs who are building products, new businesses, and customer opportunities in the advanced e-textiles and wearable e-textiles space. The discussions will offer diverse perspectives for developing advanced material applications that are often uncharted in both product and business development. These leaders will share their unique real-world perspectives on how they had to navigate emerging markets, scout for innovative talent, and develop novel supply chains and manufacturing plans. Their ability to push past these types of pitfalls allows them to develop strategies to persevere and deliver differentiating products.
