This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Greg Horowitt’s mission is to promote the promiscuity of ideas as a way to foster innovation. With an understanding that “thinking plus feeling equals believing”, and the knowledge that our belief system underlies our decision process, the idea of innovation seem more accessible. Greg’s talk also takes us through the 7 Rules of the Rainforest, where chaos is rewarded and ideas run wild.
Greg is the Founding Partner and Managing Director of T2 Venture Capital, a seed and early stage venture fund and advisory services firm focused on high impact enterprise and the ecosystems that support them. He is the co-author of the bestselling book, “The Rainforest: the Secret to Building the Next Silicon Valley” which examines the dynamics and drivers of innovation ecosystems; drawn from firsthand experiences designing, implementing, and monitoring the innovation ecosystems of more than a dozen regions around the world.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
