Welcome to the KINpendium 2017, the companion website
for our annual global conference. This is the ninth year of the Kellogg Innovation Network — KIN — conference and our very first at Kellogg’s magnificent new Global Hub (see map).
Programming will be split between the Hub and the Allen Center. The schedule below will help you navigate what and who is where and when. It is quite a line up!
Our theme this year--Foresight—will be viewed through a range of lenses: personal, global, political, scientific, strategic and, of course, entrepreneurial. Foresight is about leveraging what we know from the multi-faceted past and ever-changing present to imagine and create the futures to which we aspire.
With more than a hundred presenters, there is much to
explore in the schedule, but be sure also to peruse the speaker bios, which include links to websites, books and related videos.
The KIN is a network of networks, spanning disciplines
and geography. KINians know that the most innovative ideas and inspired collaborations happen when unlike minds join together to tackle shared problems. To quote KIN Advisory Board Member Ted Wright, "The power of face-to-face is triumphant over every other channel.”
On behalf of everyone at KIN Global, we cannot wait
to see you!
