2014, Goa India


Sep 11 - Sep 13

Great ideas begin by asking "What If"? We never know where it may take us, but they begin with the intent to try the untested. There is a degree of speculation in taking that first step towards reimagining how the world could be, beyond how it is. While some see obstacles and risks, others see opportunities. Radical approaches push people to think beyond cliches and question norms to give shape and form to new ideas. Speakers from around the world shook delegates out of their comfort zone and challenged them to break conventions.
