 Burning Man is Silicon Valley

Image1

Description

California's Bay Area is the countercultural and technological capital of the United States, as famous for beatniks, hippies and the LGBTIQ community as it is for tech giants like Apple and Google.

In 2015, Tesla CEO Elon Musk connected the dots by declaring that 'Burning Man is Silicon Valley'. Is there really a relationship between alternative worldviews and business innovation? And, if so, what lessons might we apply here in Melbourne?

The panel, MCs by Future Crunch's Angus Hervey, features:
- Jodi York, Melburners Inc, Melbourne Business School
- Tamara di Mattina, The New Joneses
- Michael Scarlett, Culture Jam, The Town Festival.
