Curiosity: The Fuel That Sparks Entrepreneurship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this interactive session, attendees will develop their curiosity skills that could lead to ideas for new ventures in a range of settings. As people walk around, most look forward – glancing at their phones on the way. Innovators and entrepreneurs see the world by looking up, down, behind them and take in the aromas and sounds of the environments they explore.
Stephen has interviewed hundreds of innovators about how they ignited their curiosity on their journey to become an innovator.  We will hear their stories and attendees will try out some of their techniques to spark their own curiosity – fueling their entrepreneurial passion.
