INNOVATE Tech Conference

Technology has become an integral part of our lives, changing our lives and work, the opportunities for new ventures and established enterprises, and more broadly society. Technology-based disruptions are affecting almost every sector today, including transportation, health care, financial services and retail. They are also affecting industry structure, organizational capabilities and the future of work for humans and machines/robots.

Every business is a tech business today. This event aims to bring successful entrepreneurs and executives together for a glimpse of the latest innovations and their potential impact.

Tech + Society Conference

November 4, 2022

We live in fascinating times - tech-based innovation offers the promise of disruptive technologies which can lower cost and improve outcomes in critical areas of societal focus. These innovations and the businesses that drive them, however, are often subject to a rapidly emerging "techlash" with a growing set of concerns about potential monopolistic behavior of large tech companies, concerns about data privacy, systemic bias embedded in algorithmic decision making, a growing digital and income divide and uncertainty about the future of work.
