New To Big: A Conversation About Entrepreneurship, Corporate Innovation, and the Intersection Between the Two

Sat, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM The Spur
General PublicEntrepreneurs


The Harvard Business School Club of New York and The Spur present β€œNew To Big,” a conversation about entrepreneurship, corporate innovation, and the intersection between the two. This event is perfect for corporate executives, fellow entrepreneurs, and anyone who wants to understand how startups and enterprises can work together in pursuit of growth.

Join a conversation with serial entrepreneurs David Kidder, Christina Wallace, and Maxine Friedman. Kidder and Wallace are co-authors of a new book New to Big, which details how established companies are skilled at growing big businesses into even bigger ones – but are less adept at discovering new opportunities and turning them into big businesses the way entrepreneurs and early-stage investors must.

All three are executives at Bionic Solution, a company that specializes in helping large organizations develop an entrepreneurial capability. They will discuss Bionic’s Growth Operating System – a method for installing permanent growth capability inside any organization.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.
