Entrepreneurship & Future of Work

COVID has accelerated changes in the way people work around the world, making this discussion on the future of work more relevant than ever before. With exponential technologies including AI, AR/VR and blockchain that rapidly change how we do business as well as how we recruit and retain talent, the future of work will be shaped by entrepreneurial minds who can effectively leverage these exponential technologies and its value drivers to bring the most innovative solutions. This talk covers 1) how the entrepreneurial mindset drives value creation at work, 2) how one can be more entrepreneurial in their current role regardless of job title, as well as 3) case studies of how entrepreneurship and exponential technologies are shaping how we work, where we work, and the skills we need to work for some of the most renowned startups and corporates across the world.


Successful entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs must have effective investing frameworks to think through how to best invest their time, capital and resources. We will go through best practices around an exponential mindset for investing, starting with an introduction to the world of venture capital in Silicon Valley, which has backed some of the best entrepreneurs in the world. This workshop will include an opportunity to put into practice the investing frameworks we cover as well.
