Small Business Week 2021 Keynote Address with Janet Bannister, Founder at Kijiji.ca
LIVE AND IN-PERSON
Enable or Disrupt? The New Innovation Economy
Keynote Address with
Partner at Real Ventures & Founder at Kijiji.ca
We have entered a new phase of business. Transformative technologies are disrupting every single industry on the planet, and whether you know it or not, your business will not only have to adapt, it will have to fundamentally change.
In this eye-opening talk, venture capitalist and founder of Kijiji.ca Janet Bannister takes a look at three key things that are reshaping business right now: AI and transformative technologies, platform businesses, and the democratization of creative production. In the midst of all this change, two types of companies will emerge, says Janet: enablers (the ones building the transformative tech stack) and disruptors (companies that will use the transformative tech stack to redesign or create new markets, processes, models, products, and services). Where will your organization fall on this scale? What implications will it have on your line of business? And what are the new requirements, opportunities, and challenges you will face?
An authentic and down-to-earth speaker, Janet shares case studies and insights that illustrate the importance of the innovation economy. In a time when everything in business is changing, this direct keynote is absolutely essential. Janet reveals what your company needs to hear, right now.
