Each year EEDC brings together the leading minds in business, creativity, and innovation from across Canada and the world to inspire Edmonton’s entrepreneurial-minded and accelerate the drive to compete within the region. This year’s E-Town Festival took place September 11 and 12, 2014 and did not disappoint. For fans of E-Town or those who are curious about what happens in Shaw Conference Centre’s Hall D, we’d like to share one keynote’s talk with you.
Peter H. Diamandis, bestselling author of Abundance, Chairman and CEO of XPRIZE and co-founder of Singularity University, gave an extraordinary presentation at E-Town Festival 2014. His keynote, “Innovation & Breakthroughs in an Exponential World,” was the highlight of our program for many of E-Town’s attendees, and we all walked away with the challenge to think about how we can solve the world’s biggest problems. Peter generously provided a video summary, highlighting the most important concepts and breakthroughs ahead. If you weren’t able to see him live, we highly recommend that you watch it.
Also, if you’d like to download his actual PowerPoint slides (so you can see the data and incredible examples yourself), you can do it here.
