Welcome to SVForum’s new Quarterly Series – Innovation for Jobs (I4J), where we will gather key thought leaders together to spread the ideas of the future for jobs and how innovation plays a key role in the work place transformation; from discussing the business and investment opportunities it opens up, to education’s role to what policies and shifts in the society need to take place to fully open up its potential.
Can innovation disrupt unemployment? Today, most innovation is about helping people to spend money in meaningful ways. But in an ideal, sustainable economy, people need meaningful ways to earn money, as well—especially as the job landscape continues to change rapidly and dramatically, and certain forms of employment are either reduced or retired completely.
Luckily, innovation is the single greatest driver of job creation, and is propelling entrepreneurial companies to expand, even in a static economic climate. The Internet’s ability to match needles between haystacks enables a new labor market. Jobs may be tailored to fit each individual’s strengths and passions to the right opportunity.
Today, every second person is in the work force. Every fifth cares about their job. Human capacity is our largest underutilized resource.
Join us for an insightful discussion and hear candid views on how the innovation for jobs ecosystem can disrupt unemployment, create meaningful work, and drive substantial growth in the economy. Get tickets now! #SVFI4J #SVFJobDisrupt
