How we can redesign human and economic systems so that social impact and financial returns are aligned?
How new types of public private partnerships can solve seemingly intracable problems?
The six sins of social impact
The seven symbols of successful entrepreneurship
The three secret hacks for how to be innovative

In this keynote, Dr. Nat Ware will make the case, based on his entrepreneurial journey founding two successful companies, his Oxford PhD academic research, and his personal experiences, that we can, should and must progress as a society from a binary model of capitalism and charity (Capitalism 1.0), beyond social entrepreneurship (Capitalism 2.0), to systems entrepreneurship (Capitalism 3.0). As Nat will explain, too often people view capitalism as good or bad, without realizing that capitalism is what we make of it and how we design it. We can make it so that the profitable thing to do is also what achieves desirable outcomes when it comes to health, education, and the environment. In other words, we can innovative at a systems level and create a pragmatic utopia. In this talk, Nat will reveal what he has discovered are "the six sins of social impact," "the seven symbols of successful entrepreneurship," and "the three secret hacks for how to be innovative." Knowing this is important because the fourth industrial revolution is upon us. If we don't prioritize collaboration over competition, innovation over intellect, and resourcefulness over resources, AI and robotics will soon make humans substitutes not complements. Prepare to be entertained, and challenged, and inspired.

Are you good enough? Tackling impostor syndrome in entrepreneurship
Valentina Kislaya
11:30 - 11:50
icon

Most people in life are, by nature, risk averse. Starting the journey of entrepreneurship therefore goes against our natural instincts. As brave as it may sound, the truth is that it is often not as fun as most books might suggest, leaving entrepreneurs feeling exposed and vulnerable.
1) What is impostor syndrome and how does it translate into entrepreneurship?
2) What is your risk level (to imposter syndrome) and how can it affect your success?
3) How can you tip the balance towards productive development?

Entrepreneurship has always had the potential to revolutionise society for the better – but not until society revolutionises itself. Understanding your own psychological behaviours - both positive and negative - and harnessing them to achieve a greater level of psychological flexibility is one of the many steps towards this revolution.

We’re all turning towards technologies and AI but the truth is, it’s not technology which is going to revolutionize business as we know it. It’s psychology. 90 – 95% decisions happen subconsciously and Matej will take you on a journey to your customers’ subconscious mind. He will show you how changing just a few words lead to doubling sales, how inserting a clever sentence caused 3x more people to apply for an unwanted job or how switching the order of information caused a 55% increase in conversions of a campaign. After this lecture, your view of customers will change. Forever.
