The seventh annual Fast Company Innovation Festival returns this year as an immersive virtual experience, featuring four days of inspirational keynote interviews, in-depth panels, and interactive workshops.
The festival will take place virtually on September 27-30. Every year, the event welcomes a global audience of thousands of entrepreneurs, executives, and thinkers, who view the world through the lens of innovation and creativity.
The theme of this year’s festival, “The Rebuilders,” seeks to illuminate visionary leaders and companies that are reconstructing and reimagining conventional ideas about business, community, and culture, especially as the world looks to emerge stronger from the health, economic, and social justice crises of the last year.
Keynote interviews, panels, and workshops will occur in our virtual hub—a multi-session experience where imaginative leaders and innovators will convene from across the globe.
Confirmed speakers include UPS CEO Carol Tomé; IBM Chairman and CEO Arvind Krisha; Cathy Bessant, chief operations and technology officer, Bank of America; and Nobel Prize-winning economists Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee of MIT.
The festival is sponsored by Genpact, Mastercard, Takeda, and the Elevate Prize.
