In the imagination economy world, we entrepreneurs need to consider about what is going to happen in the future and how we are going to deal with it. With the changing times, we also need to consider untapped job markets and how we can uncover new job opportunities and markets. You should concentrate on finding "work you do not have". Examine "Who is doing what you are doing now," in a field similar to yours, and if there are others who are likely to compete with you, think about the value you could add to your field and learn about future strategies to better yourself.

Can changing the way we measure value help start-ups focus on the long term? The Embankment Project for Inclusive Capitalism explores this question for leading global companies and we will explore this for start-ups in this panel. The current financial metrics for determining value don’t always capture the value of a company especially with a start-up. The panel will discuss other non-financial metrics for talent, innovation, environment and corporate governance and how these metrics can create and determine value in the long term for start-ups.
After all programs have concluded on the event’s last day, you cab deepen your new friendships with delegates by eating drinking, and dancing. This is a great opportunity for business networking.
