INSEAD San Francisco Hub Launch

蜜桃视频February 2020, will mark a significant milestone in INSEAD’s history as the school inaugurates the San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation - its first North American location.

The Hub is a place where global students, alumni, faculty, and leaders collectively will shape the future of business. Situated in the heart of San Francisco—where cutting-edge technology, venture finance, and forward-thinking education converge—our North American location engages diverse communities to advance INSEAD's mission: to bring together people, cultures, and ideas to develop responsible leaders who transform business and society.

This is more than just a building. It is a dynamic, flexible facility that invites thinkers and doers to connect and co-create and leads the development of innovative research and teaching. It will open a new world of opportunities to collaborate and engage with a dynamic ecosystem of innovators.

蜜桃视频Above all, the Hub aspires to rally today’s world-class tech talent to reimagine the future of business and its role in society. As we mark 60 years of excellence at INSEAD, join us in celebrating this new chapter in our history.

Tech everywhere in turbulent times

Rapid advances in technology, coupled with a succession of economic, social and political shocks, have created a world where change is the only constant. INSEAD is perfectly poised to offer insights and strategies to translate fast-paced technological innovation in helping business thrive in the digital age.

With a theme Tech everywhere in turbulent times, the inauguration is an exclusive and highly interactive event that provides a unique opportunity to exchange ideas on digital transformation, artificial intelligence and exciting new possibilities for leaders and organizations in a global business landscape being turned upside down by technology change.

The day will consist of an official opening ceremony followed by keynote talks by Silicon Valley business leaders and plenary & content sessions addressing a number of today’s most important business topics. It will also be the opportunity to interact and debate with our faculty on their latest research.
