CIO Academy Asia is pleased to support the Festival of Disruptors (FOD). The conference is about sharing inspiring stories from people and businesses that have changed the way things have been done before for positive impact.
The Festival of Disruptors is a catalyst for innovation. Presenting the most dynamic international and local disruptors live on stage, it gives access to the thinking behind the best start-ups and technologies of our time. More than a conference, the Festival of Disruptors engages attendees in a personal way, with multiple opportunities for robust interaction with our speakers. Discover a blue print for disruptive thinking. Learn what it takes to become a disruptor, who challenges the status quo for positive change. Inspire future disruption.
The programme culminates in a live pitch for USD10k from Singapore’s newest innovators as they take us to the edge of disruption and beyond in our TEN4TEN challenge. Join the movement to question the status quo and to celebrate the best in Singapore’s disruptive talent.
In 2017, the focus is on two significant global themes.
INNOVATION PANEL: AI AND THE HUMAN CONNECTION
How do we deepen the connection between AI and humans to redefine the way we work, live and play? The INNOVATION panel illuminates the unique ideas and stories from Asian disruptors who are on the cutting edge of changing the way things are done in their respective fields.
EARTH PANEL: SUSTAINABILITY AND LONG-TERM WEALTH CREATION
What can we do to rescue our planet from the threats of climate change and global warming, while sustaining economic growth? The EARTH Panel brings together pragmatists, academics and community leaders to explore the development and deployment of disruptive solutions to sustain life as we know it.
