We attended a fantastic conference – Demand Solutions – hosted by the Inter-American Development Bank. The purpose of the conference was to highlight those who had bridged the gap between innovation and practical application to better people’s lives around the world. We learned the story of many entrepreneurs, who quit their day job, or for the really young ones, who never had a day job!
The story we found the most interesting, was that of Dean Kamen. Amongst many of his accomplishments (the Segway and Slingshot), is also the collaboration he formed with Coca-Cola. Kamen was looking for help in getting his water purification center into underdeveloped parts of the world. After speaking with the CEO of Coca-Cola (and some bartering), they delivered EKOCENTER. We were inspired by all of the speakers and hope to bring some of them, and their innovation, to your conference soon. Watch the video below to learn a little more.
