Every business claims to be disruptive. Most startup founders want to innovate the next app or feature to attract more dollars or clicks than the industry standard. Now there’s a new class of rising entrepreneurs inventing business models, not technology. They scale by giving consumers radical new choices. Panelists will illuminate the philosophies & execution behind their Industry Hacking:
•Sunrun redefined home solar so homeowners can opt out of dirty energy without buying expensive panels
•Birchbox transformed retail by offering sample boxes to consumers to discover, sample, and learn about the best products
•Bina revolutionizes healthcare by giving Americans easier access to their DNA information
•RETHINK Multimedia works with brands passionate about engaging the Transformational Consumer via imagination, design and digital content
These hackers represent a new age of entrepreneurship in which business model innovation changes the marketplace and world more than technology tweaks.
