BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intelius CEO Naveen Jain believes simple, innovative ideas can solve complex problems, and he will bring that unique perspective to The Economist’s third annual “Ideas Economy: Innovation” conference today in Berkeley, Calif. Jain will detail the growing global spirit of entrepreneurialism and explain how it is democratizing innovation around the world. Jain and other leading thinkers from business, government, nonprofits and academia will explain how innovation can propel nations and lead to lasting progress and prosperity.
“The global pace of innovation is expanding, and it is going to make a positive impact in every aspect of society, business and culture. Just think about how we could create an abundance of resources on this planet by simply capturing more of the sun’s energy or improving the process of farming to save clean water,” said Jain, CEO of Intelius. “Collectively, we must energize our global potential to break down barriers and achieve dramatic progress through the power of entrepreneurialism and innovation.”
Building a culture of innovation for the 21st Century requires new approaches to old problems. Jain will redefine the challenges that face our world by focusing on ideas that could dramatically change the world for the better. The Ideas Economy: Innovation event will examine the role of governments, corporations and individuals as drivers of innovation and economic progress. Jain will describe how innovation and entrepreneurship can solve big problems in a special session beginning at 9:30 a.m. on March 28.
“Naveen Jain is a one-of-a-kind entrepreneur. There is no limit to his vision or determination. He understands that one simple idea can result in powerful changes that will reverberate around the globe,” said Vijay V. Vaitheeswaran, China business and finance editor for The Economist. “Naveen is on a lifelong journey inspired by his passion for a better world. It will be a special honor to join him on that journey at this conference.”
