The next generation of entrepreneurs are more connected and innovative than ever before. Accelerating technologies, crowd funding, incubators and cloud computing have lowered the barrier of entry for an entrepreneur to get started, gain funding, and achieve success quickly. It is critical to provide a supportive culture for young people to take action and convert their brilliant ideas into meaningful projects. This workshop will explore the changing landscape of business and look at how on how business leaders and chambers can help foster, rather than stifle, creativity in an age of increasing digitization.
This workshop will discuss:
- how current business models, best business practices, corporate culture, and chamber practices can evolve so as to encourage innovation and creativity
- what skill sets, values, and knowledge should be imparted to future business leaders
- the state of entrepreneurship in various regions
- and why businesses should invest in corporate social responsibility and grassroots, community-based initiatives
