Workshop by Adrian Reif and Mansi Kakkar. With the world facing major challenges now, in the short-term, and over the next fifty years, business is poised to solve these challenges, but will it solve them doing business as usual? Regenerative Innovation is an emerging field that allows organizations such as businesses to understand the complex systems they operate in and the complex problems they’re (hopefully) working to solve. Ultimately, entrepreneurs and business leaders will need to create products, places, processes and business models that empower people and heal the planet. Otherwise, there is no market place to do business in. In turn, such an approach can carve out deep market leadership, ensure relevance, and begin building a world that works for everyone. In this session we will explore how you can uplevel your business model to become a game changing leader while also doing good. Come prepared to ask yourself hard questions, roll up your sleeves and tinker and also have fun while doing it.

Speaker(s): Adrian Reif has been a social entrepreneur and investor for over a decade, growing his first company from a farmers’ market stand to sold in over 6,000 grocery stores. Now, Adrian’s company, Incredible, helps ambitious orgs rethink how to fix the future. He’s also the author of The Do-Gooder’s Guide to Investing, a guide for anyone who wants to align their money and their values.
Mansi Kakkar calls herself a pattern transcriber and convenes explorative conversations for regeneration. She has been working in the field of design and innovation for the last 14 years having traveled the length and breath of this world building capacity in innovation labs tackling the most complex problems facing humanity. All this experience is being synthesized in an upcoming book ‘Regenerative Innovation’, releasing in 2021. Mansi is also an artist, dancer, poet and performer. When not filling her office wall with post-its, she spends time making regenerative memes for kicks.

Co-Sponsor(s): West Central SBDC, Northwest SBDC, and Central Mountain SBDC. Buena Vista Chamber, Salida Chamber, Salida Business Alliance and our hosts of Chaffee, Lake and Park counties.
