Powering Up Innovation for a Resource-Deprived World

According to scholar and entrepreneur Nadya Zhexembayeva, businesses need to make resource scarcity – the overfished ocean – their primary strategic consideration, not just a concern for their “green” division.

This Soundview Live webinar, Powering Up Innovation for a Resource-Deprived World, is for everyone who wants to survive and thrive in this new economy – people who are looking for new solutions to their managerial challenges, entrepreneurs and business leaders eager to protect their companies and get ahead of the wave, journalists and academics searching for new level of discussion, educators interested in connecting the dots across disciplines and generations, non-profit leaders trying to understand and engage with the new business world, and, perhaps, most importantly, global youth who will grow into the generation responsible for making the new world work.
