Event Details

description

This talk is about the unparalleled possibilities of now. In our lifetimes, the benefits of four centuries of technological and organizational change are at last reaching a previously excluded global majority. This transformation is creating large-scale opportunities in richer countries like the United States just as in poorer countries now in the ascent.

To capitalize upon the powerful momentum of global progress we need first to overcome outdated narratives of fear and persistent tendencies toward strategic myopia. Yes, humanity faces huge challenges like climate change, water scarcity, and rapid urbanization. Yet each of these challenges presents opportunities. For this reason entrepreneurship is the key to realizing the full potential of the future.
