Event description
Those who embrace purpose emerge as winners—a pre-SXSW discussion of Fjord, Accenture, and IIT Institute of Design reports.

About this Event

Program

As businesses reconsider their relationships with people, enterprise partners, and the world at large, what’s emerging is nothing short than a major realignment of fundamentals. This shift, partly driven by society’s ever-increasing love for technology, is presenting opportunities to innovate operating models, services, and products around new definitions of value.

In this pre-SXSW discussion, we’ll present the unique perspectives of two new Accenture reports, Fjord Trends 2020 and Technology Vision, as well as IIT Institute of Design's report, Lead with Purpose, to show how those who embrace their long-term impact and purpose in the systemic complexity of the world will emerge as winners.

IIT Institute of Design (ID) builds responsible, cooperative, intelligent futures. Founded by László Moholy-Nagy as The New Bauhaus in 1937, ID is known for pioneering human-centered design and systems design. Today we are home to the only US design school devoted completely to graduate students. But ID is more than a graduate school. We are an international community of learners and practitioners who are addressing the biggest issues of our time by eliciting a power unique to humans: creativity. Learn more about ID at id.iit.edu.

The Kaplan Institute nurtures the advancement of critical and creative ideas, fosters interdisciplinary and external collaboration, and creates a culture that enables innovation and tech entrepreneurship to flourish on campus and throughout the larger community as well. In addition, the institute aggressively contributes to its surroundings and to Chicago’s overall economy by encouraging, supporting, and assisting its students and faculty in creating new businesses and other entrepreneurial endeavors.

Co-sponsored by the Illinois Institute of Technology's Armour College of Engineering, College of Architecture, College of Science, and Stuart School of Business
