High-tech Low-tech Fusion: TYPO Talks
In a world where change is inevitable and billions are spent on dead-end innovation, the ability to innovate nimbly and at low-cost is crucial for businesses and brands. On the other hand, some of the most inspiring and impactful examples of innovation are coming from the communities with the fewest resources. In places like Africa, India and Cuba, people are using low-tech innovation and creative thinking to transform the lives of the local people who live in devastating poverty.
In his talk, ‘High-tech, Low-tech Fusion – Creative Thinking to Transform Lives’, Pearlfisher Founding Partner & CEO Jonathan Ford will discuss what the world’s biggest brands can learn from the low-tech innovation model, inspired by this entrepreneurial thinking and the use of digital technologies in transforming rural communities.
