If software is eating the world, we might as well have a glass of wine with it.

November 3-10, 2017, Lisbon

 

The House of Beautiful Business, in collaboration with the BCG Henderson Institute, is a pop-up community for meaningful conversations about technology and humanity. Taking place in Lisbon before and during Web Summit, the House will serve as salon, stage, and sandbox for people who are keen on rehumanizing business in a playful and intimate setting.

We will explore how to lead with purpose and passion; how to build human companies and workplaces; and how to design for deeper connections in the age of exponential change and massive societal disruption.
