RootsTech Day 1: Innovators Summit

This was my 1st year attending innovators summit, and it was aweome! We started off the day with a great keynote by Liz Wiseman.
She taught us about "Rookie Smarts" Some of my takeaways were:
-Beginners often can solve impossible problems just because they don't know that it's impossible.
-Put in the work and take the risk
-When we become comfortable we begin to expect things and we will sometimes miss the obvious solution.
-Always push yourself!
She is such a great speaker and I highly reccomend reading one of her books, especilaly if you didn't get to see her speak.

Another big part of the day was watching the semi-finaliats pitch their ideas to the judges.

Later that night we attended the 80's party, it was a blast!

Towards the end of the party they annoced the innovators summit finalists were announced. 
They are: 
-Double Match Triangulator
-OldNews USA

I had a great time today, and I can't wait until tomorrow!
