INSIGHT. INSPIRATION. IMPACT.
Innovation is at the core of everything we do. Every day on our website, and in each issue of the magazine, we delve into the new ideas and radical creativity which are upending status quo in the business world; our mission is to determine how and why these changes matter.
At Innovation Uncensored, we turn this coverage into a real- world conversation, where the people on the pages come to you and share what they know. Surprising stats, smart techniques, best practices, true confessions—it’s not just the nuts and bolts of business; it’s the heart and soul. And that’s what makes this event different. It’s a two-day master class from the world’s most innovative companies.
Some of this year’s speakers will include:
Mario Batali, Chef & Author
Jack Dorsey, CEO, Square
David Karp, Founder, Tumblr
Jonah Peretti, Founder & CEO, Buzzfeed
Emily Rahimi, Social and Digital Media Manager, NYC Fire Department
