Video: Innovation in Times of Flux
Here’s your innovation inspiration for the weekend: the panel discussion titled Innovation in Times of Flux:Opportunity on the Heels of Crisis from the opening plenary of the 2012 Skoll World Forum. Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation moderated a panel featuring Roger Martin, Dean of the Rotman School of Business, Soraya Salti, a Skoll Entrepreneur and Regional Director at INJAZ, and Patrick Meier, Director of Social Innovation at the Qatar Foundation’s Computing Research Institute.
Watch this great conversation and think about the role that financial innovation can play in supporting nonprofits; you may also consider reading Antony Bugg-Levine, Bruce Kogut and Nalin Kulatilaka’s excellent January 2012 article on funding social enterprises in the Harvard Business Review [PDF].
What did you think of the conversation, and what did you take away from it? Comment below!
