The Shift Is Here. Business Must Lead.

Shift Forum brings together a unique group of leaders from small, fast-growth start-ups (NewCos) and Fortune 500 companies (BigCos), together with an array of experts from the policy and regulation fields to discuss how today’s business leaders can navigate the unstable landscape of rapid technological change and regulatory uncertainty. The event invites attendees to participate in a multi-faceted conversation about capitalism at a crossroads. The role of business in society has never been more crucial, and more in flux and it’s never been more important to get smart on the issues.
