THURSDAY, 08.30 - 10.00 Ministry Club, 79-81 Borough Road, London, SE1 1DN

Yancey Strickler is the co-founder of Kickstarter, the mission-driven global Public Benefit Company that helped to pioneer crowdfunding. He was one of Fortune’s ‘40 Under 40’, on Vanity Fair’s ‘New Establishment’ List, and World Economic Forum ‘Young Global Leader’. The Spectator called him "one of the least obnoxious tech evangelists ever."

In this talk with Bookomi's Richard Kilgarriff, Yancey explains how the relentless pursuit of financial gain, above-all-else, has become the new world order.

We have become bystanders to a system that benefits the few, debilitates the rest, and paves the way to a bland, ‘samey’ culture. This is what our future looks like.

 

So how do we build a values-based society together?
