How to create a culture of innovation within your company presented by Peter Diamandis, Chairman and CEO XPRIZE Foundation

Based on the success of the Ansari XPRIZE (which stimulated the creation of the billion-dollar private spaceflight industry) and more recently the launch of the $30M Google Lunar XPRIZE, Diamandis discusses how to incentivize innovative thinking and breakthroughs. He explains how traditional thinking, risk-aversion, and incrementalism causes the demise of companies unable to cope with the changes brought by disruptive innovation. Diamandis discusses how the rapid growth of key exponential technologies (nano, info, bio) is empowering individuals and companies to do what only governments were able to achieve in past decades. With the message of “evolve or die,” Diamandis is a dynamic, inspirational speaker who provides real value to his audience by showing them how to drive breakthrough thinking focused on achieving clear, measurable, and objective results.
