Don't Be Ned Stark: Change Your Institution & Live

Clay Shirky has said that the only institutions that will thrive in the Internet age are those born of the Internet. We have built an ecosystem to advance digital startups: accelerators and incubators, mentors, curriculum and academic courses. In our rush to embrace startup culture, we risk ignoring the importance of institutions, public and private. US colleges and universities alone control over $350 billion. A handful of leaders and internal change agents are trying to apply startups’ culture of experimentation, appetite for risk and acceptance of failure to government, educational and corporate institutions. Disruption is lonely work; when they’re not successful internal change agents can find themselves isolated and out of a job. The panel will include two digital entrepreneurs with recent experience in institutions and someone with experience driving change within government.
