The House of Beautiful Business opened its doors during and before the Web Summit in Lisbon to explore “the very human future of business” in a playful and intimate setting. Over 200 residents — founders, business leaders, investors, social entrepreneurs, writers, philosophers, scientists, designers, technologists, and artists — convened in two locations for the first week-long House.

It is clear that the rules have changed, but we are keen on co-creating a positive vision for the future of business that makes the combination of exponential technology and humanity more than just the sum of the parts.
— Martin Reeves, Director, BCG Henderson Institute

The days were long, and our heads were sometimes exploding from the intensity of the discussions and all the intellectual stimulation, but that was what made it so unique and special.
