Internationally sought-after business strategist and Silicon Valley based entrepreneur Salim Ismail is coming to Auckland for a student-focussed talk on innovation and the future of business.
We are in the midst of a business transformation that hasn’t been seen in one hundred years, largely driven by disruptive technologies and globalization. Salim’s insights into how to harness cutting edge ideas and how the acceleration of disruptive technologies will transform business are mind-altering. Salim will discuss:
- How major breakthroughs in technologies including robotics, biotech, sensors, neuroscience and medicine, will impact society and business.
- How the confluence of new developments makes today the best time ever to be an entrepreneur.
- How accelerating change has fostered Exponential Organisations - a new breed of business that is scaling ten times faster.
- The place of today’s students in tomorrow’s businesses.
Salim has spent the last four years as Founding Executive Director of Singularity University based at NASA Ames in Silicon Valley. Before that he built and ran Brickhouse, Yahoo’s internal incubator. His last company, Angstro, was sold to Google in August 2010.
Date: Wednesday July 29th, 6pm-7:30pm
Venue: University of Auckland Library Basement Lecture Theatre 28, Cnr Alfred Street & Princess Street, Auckland 1010
