Event Details

Join a free business master's degree trial class in Tokyo!

Abstract:
The unprecedented technological progress we are experimenting is an invaluable tool to confront prevalent issues such as poverty, lack of access to health and education or climate change.
While innovation and technology are important to any organization, its potential impact on those with a social mission is especially significant. The reflection on incorporation of technology can make the difference between a small project and an organization prepared to transform the reality in which it works.
By exposing participants to examples of technology-based innovation in the most constrained circumstances, we will dispel the persistent myth that innovation is always resource intensive and limited to but a few heroic figures covered in popular press.

In this master class, participants will learn how exponential technologies such as Blockchain, VR/AR or Artificial Intelligence are revolutionizing our capacity to solve the world’s most pressing issues and improve the lives of millions.
