A global community to humanize business in an age of machines.

The House of Beautiful Business 2019 will take place from November 2-6 in Lisbon. It brings together 500 Residents from business, public sector, science, technology, the humanities, and the arts to envision and experience new models for the future of our economies and societies at human scale.

The battle for beautiful business is on: Fixing capitalism. Creating elegant operating systems for our companies that allow them to be effective, not just efficient. Celebrating humans as anti-machines in an age of machines. Actually becoming climate-positive human beings. Enjoying moments of connection, beauty, and wonder that make “our shared humanity” not just a cliché but something so real that we can touch it. Transforming a former bank in the heart of Lisbon’s old town, we’ll be transforming business-as-usual: through talks, debates, workshops, experiments, games, prototyping, dinners, art installations, music, dance, silent parties, and much, much more.
