The Economist is launching its inaugural event, Innovation: Fresh thinking for the ideas economy, at the University of California, Berkeley on March 23 and 24 and we're thrilled to be a part of it! With its unique approach, this event is a marketplace for ideas focused on innovation, intelligent infrastructure, and human potential. Described as a multi-part, multimedia forum designed to fuse creativity with action, this event will expand and possibly overturn established thinking about what innovation is, where it comes from, and how to make it work.
The confirmed speaker line-up includes an impressive list of academics, authors, entrepreneurs, and executives. The featured speakers were announced using a nice Prezi on the event's site! We are proud to be part of the event and cooperating with the conference. Check the prezi here:
