Why #BIF2018?


Imagine having two days to shift your entire perspective by connecting outside your usual silos. Imagine a space to build relationships. To think differently. To experience stories of transformation that’ll change your world. Now imagine yourself at #BIF2018.


At the Business Innovation Factory (BIF) Summit, 500 people come together in a historic theater to hear 15-minute stories of transformation, as 32 people from many different industries and sectors tell the stories of their creative processes, their struggles, and where they’re going in the future.

A purposeful community of innovation junkies gathers at each Summit, ready to connect with ‘unusual suspects’ and new ideas, get in touch with their innate creativity, and identify better ways to deliver value.

Since the first BIF Summit, we’ve heard stories from more than 200 innovators from across every sector and discipline. Even more amazing is that over 2,500people from around the world have participated in a BIF Summit.

Register for the BIF Summit, and you’ll leave inspired and ready to transform yourself, your company, and even the world.

“The Business Innovation Factory shares my passion for creating experiences that spark intelligent conversations. Their BIF Summit attracts smart individuals who tell fresh stories about their passions, ideas and failures. BIF understands that when you look in the gray area between disciplines, good, inspiring concepts will arise.” – RICHARD SAUL WURMAN, FOUNDER OF TED



“Once in awhile you encounter a gathering that says it’s about ideas, and, well, it’s about ideas and more. It’s about a way of sharing ideas that is friendly. Honest. Comfortable. Unassuming. It’s about a way of bringing people together so they actually get to engage with each other. It’s about a mindset that is genuine. Which only happens because the people who stand behind the conference are genuine. And honestly interested in the right stuff, the real stuff, the stuff that matters. And that’s what makes BIF matter for me.” – ALAN WEBBER, FOUNDING EDITOR AT FAST COMPANY
