This event will be in English in collaboration with Startup Grind Italy (Universidad Catolica).
The world has been forced to make dramatic changes in the last few months due to the coronavirus outbreak: production has changed, economies fear a global crisis, smart working has become more and more popular among companies. So how are innovation industries facing this situation around the globe? How should they change their products and possibly their way of thinking in order to face such a calamity? Is the pandemic going to make a fresh start necessary for companies?
We will be discussing about these and other related topics by making a comparison between the Mexican and the Italian industrial ecosystems. Laura Segarra, a designer, entrepreneur, innovator and manager, currently in charge of the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem (Zona Ei) in the central region of Tecnológico de Monterrey, will talk about the Mexican situation, while Daniele, Managing Director of Eelctron SpA, will analyze the Italian one.
At the end of this event you should have learned:
- What did you do in order to face the emergency and adapt your industry to the situation?
- Has your product/work changed?
- How do you think your way of producing will be different after the pandemic?
We will be streaming on Facbook and Youtube:
