An Executive Conference on Capitalism at a Crossroads

February 26th – 28th, 2018

Steph Curry: You Win When Everyone Touches the Ball

Steph Curry, as point guard and reigning league MVP, is the chief evangelist of the team-first focus. But there’s another side to him that you might not be familiar with: he’s also an avid entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist, and is actively involved in the startup world.

Businesses are Expected to Not Just be Part of Society - They Must Lead.

At Shift Forum, we established a framework for a new kind of business conversation: The interwoven, tectonic shifts driven by both political and technological uncertainty have left capitalism at a crossroads, and we agreed to elevate our thinking beyond a single industry or subject area, focusing instead on the issues and challenges driving our society overall. What's next?

Saving Democracy (and Capitalism) With Robert Reich

If anyone can command the intertwined threads of policy, economics, and capitalism it’s Reich. In conversation with John Heilemann, co-creator and host of Showtime’s The Circus, Reich pulls not a single punch, questioning President Trump’s policies, practices, and, at one point, his basic sanity.

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 the 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.
