It’s like a passport into the true culture of businesses changing the face of cities as diverse as Istanbul, Mexico City, New York, Austin, San Francisco, Barcelona, and Shanghai. Our "inside out" model is simple: Pick your city. Get your ticket. Choose which companies you want to explore.
Preterm and underweight babies who survive their first month can still suffer severe long-term health problems — diabetes, heart disease, developmental delay. Keeping them warm can help prevent those problems. Jane Chen, Embrace Innovations’ CEO and co-founder, tells NewCo that over the next few years the company wants to go from helping 200,000 babies across 14 countries in the developing world to helping a million. In order to do that, it’s counting on an assist from its consumer-facing product — Little Lotus.
NewCo talks with Pip Jamieson, founder of The Dots. The UK-based online network helps companies find talent, and gives creatives a place to post portfolios and find job opportunities from companies like MTV, Spotify, and others. “I really believe that creativity is a force for good,” Jamieson says. “Soon machines are going to drive, code, do our laundry … The last things humans are going to be good for is creativity. So, we help harness that community.”
“We received many compliments from our session and as a result, people wanting to get involved with our program.”
“We had some great conversation during our session, people throwing out new ideas that we hadn't even thought of before! ”
“Of the two dozen technology summit, conferences, events in which I attended in 2015, NewCo ranks up at the Top. Keep daring to dream!”
“Subscribe and read the @NewCo daily. Definitely worth your time. Not an ad, just a fan. ”
“I really liked that there were both large and small, and old and new companies involved in this event. Really great energy!”
“I always tell people it is a city-wide innovation open house. Such a cool opportunity to meet many new innovative companies and people in one city.”
“I had a blast. It reinvigorated me, which I think might be a measurable outcome to consider . Sometimes we go to these events to remind us that what we are doing or pursuing makes sense.”
“We should be sending nearly everyone at our company to this event next year. ”
“NewCo is more than the sum of its parts; it's an event and experience that you start to really appreciate a few months after all is said and done when the new connections you've made with prospective users, fellow entrepreneurs and like minded people start manifesting themselves into new partnerships.”
“The best thing about being a NewCo host is that the audience members are both intelligent and intensely curious, leading to a great discussion. Afterwards it was amazing to witness the whole company taking part in educating and connecting with the attendees.”
