September Events


Wednesday 9/20/17
6:00 - 7:30 PM

Futurecasting at the Collab Lab provides an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge technology and discuss how it might affect us. At this event, we will watch and discuss the recent TED talk "How to build a company where the best ideas win" by Ray Dalio. This talk focuses on how radical transparency and algorithmic decision-making can create an idea meritocracy where people can speak up and say what they really think. The strategies Dalio discusses helped him create one of the world's most successful hedge funds. How might they be applied in other contexts? What implications do they have for future business culture? Snacks and soft drinks provided.
