Named alongside TED and Pop!Tech (two very excellent national gatherings of innovation talent), the BIF Summit was noted both for the quality of the event and for BIF’s effort to make video proceedings freely available via the web (See BIF’s Innovation Story Studio for a full catalog of video assets).
One of the features that makes the BIF Summit convergence so unique is the intimacy of the event (capped at 500) and the accessibility of the storytellers. We don’t pay these innovation rock stars to come, so those who participate do so because they believe in the value of the experience.
There are less than 70 seats left for this year’s Summit on October 7-8 in Providence. This year, BIF-5 will be co-hosted by BusinessWeek contributing editor Bruce Nussbaum and bestselling author Bill Taylor. The duo will oversee a program that includes stories from innovators from across the county and every imaginable discipline and industry.
