The Future of Work

A session at Brand Camp '13 - NYC: Branding, Entrepreneurship + Technology Conference

Monday 20th May, 2013

4:45pm to 5:15pm (EST)

Startups are often looked to for inspiration – they seem to epitomize the ideal company and provide a stark contrast to the old, slow, outdated, risk-averse, joyless large companies that many startup founders actually quit in search of a better life.

The truth, though, is that every company in the world began as a startup. They all began with a spark of inspiration and innovation, and then something happens, and the companies often turn into something that even the founders do not want to work at anymore.

For the first time in the history of work, we are faced with so many career options and opportunities, that choosing something that is fulfilling and meaningful is no longer a utopian, unattainable ideal. This session will look at how that is (and should be) impacting how companies are built, and what companies are missing that is constantly pushing companies into the same cycle of going from awesome to awful.
