The rapid shift from the post-Industrial Revolution to the Digital Age has created an interrelated global society with increasingly complex and interconnected problems. Solving these problems requires working with multiple cultures and forms of knowledge, transcending the confines of single disciplines.  This new approach to problem-solving requires not only disciplinary expertise but interdisciplinary expertise.

Danna Blumenau is a serial entrepreneur and curator of new ideas with a special interest in energy. Danna has a bachelor's degree in Art and Technology from the University of Texas at Dallas and is currently working on a master's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies focusing on the intersection of energy, sustainability, and entrepreneurship. 

Danna is the President of Blue Mesa Minerals, which she uses as a platform to teach mineral owners how to maximize their mineral rights.
