DISCOVER YOUR INNOVATION WORKSHOPS
BRAVE NEW ETHICS
This will be the most pioneering decade in history. Exponential technologies will lead to exponential innovation. We should strive to take this journey, conscious of the risks we are facing, and raise a call to action for openly discussing the social repercussions these technologies could have if left only to their “makers”. We should be engaged in a framework, juxtaposing scientific and technological discoveries with the respective ethical, legal and social implications.

Learn a consistent way to create brand stories during this interactive workshop. Everybody is talking about storytelling. But what does it really mean? Why does it matter? And more importantly, how do you create a strong story for your business? With Creative Supply’s workshop, you will be immersed in the behind the scene activity of “brand story making.” You will discover how companies such as Moleskine, Shinola and Freeletics build powerful narratives.
Startups are reactive and agile value-creation vehicles. Corporates' brand, sales, production and distribution machines are their fortes. What if we brought these two together in a win-win collaboration where both entities can concentrate on their strengths and rely on the other party to derisk their weaknesses?
Participants in this co-creative workshop will explore the collaboration between startups and corporates as a powerful innovation engine. We will visit concrete case studies, review practical do's and don'ts and inquire about the audience's experiences.

A growing movement of people and projects is using digital technologies like open data, open hardware and crowdsourcing to address social challenges in new ways. We call this Digital Social Innovation (DSI).
The DSI4EU project has mapped almost 1,200 organisations and 800 projects which are using technology with the primary aim of tackling social challenges. These organisations and projects span a range of areas (such as healthcare, education, democracy, social cohesion, unemployment, and so on), use a range of technologies, and fall broadly into four categories (open hardware, open data, open knowledge and open networks).
The workshop “Commons-driven Business Models for Social Impact” propose one-hour collaborative session to define the key values for building business models based on DSI values such as the engagement and empowerment of people and practices based on collaboration, sharing, and openness.
