Disruptive Diner is an event for networking and idea exchange around a shared vision of the future. Whether it is nanotechnology, rethinking financial markets, or finding partners in a sustainable future, the Disruptive Diner is a place to meet and explore ideas with like-minded peers in an intimate and non-selling environment.
Spring 2013 sessions in St. Louis included:
- February 5th: Cloud Civics – Public data and digital tools are scaling civic service and governance – learn how citizens can drive better government services by creating them themselves.
- March 6: Alternative Transactions – When we exchange money between buyer and seller, it moves through a complex system of intermediaries. Be part of a discussion on disrupting that system for the benefit of buyers, sellers and all of us.
- April 2: Fans Take Charge – Whether its licensed fantasy sports leagues, fan fiction that becomes big business, or grassroots conventions, the boundary between property and audience is blurrier than ever before, and many opportunities are emerging.
- May 7: 3D Printing Becomes Big Business – 3D printing has grown from a hobby to being poised to begin producing objects on-demand from previously unattainable materials using low cost machines. How can we use this virtualization of product innovation to serve the “long tail” of commerce, lower our use of resources, slash logistics costs, and change what it means to be a manufacturer or consumer?
