2 Weeks to Go: Shaping the Practice and the Future of Brain Fitness at the 2014 SharpBrains Virtual Summit

2014SummitSpeakers_blog

Indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions world­wide are expected to spend over $1.3 bil­lion in 2014 in web-based, mobile and biometrics-based solu­tions to assess and enhance brain func­tion. Growth is poised to con­tinue, fueled by major gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tives such as the White House BRAIN ini­tia­tive, emerg­ing mobile and non-invasive neu­rotech­nolo­gies, and by con­sumer and patient demands for self-driven, proac­tive brain care. For exam­ple, 83% of sur­veyed early-adopters agree that “adults of all ages should take charge of their own brain fit­ness, with­out wait­ing for their doc­tors to tell them to” and “would per­son­ally take a brief assess­ment every year as an annual men­tal check-up.”

How are inno­va­tors in sci­ence, indus­try and prac­tice har­ness­ing the oppor­tu­nity at hand and shap­ing the future of brain fit­ness for max­i­mum social benefit? 

–> Join 40+ Speak­ers and over two hun­dred par­tic­i­pants as we dis­cuss and advance the Agenda.
