Event description

Presented by STYLUS and Citi Ventures

We live in turbulent times. We see an awakening of consumers, emboldened against a volatile world. Upcoming generations are making their mark as truth-seekers; they place purpose, authenticity, and fluid identities above traditional values. In their institutions, they expect brave, honest leadership that speaks to their values. Barrier-breaking trends and technologies such as Contextual and Immersive Experiences, Blockchain, and AI can pave the way for heightened empowerment.

Join us in a full-day Design Futuring workshop to explore the impact of this on people’s financial lives.

Audience
Design innovators, entrepreneurs, visionaries, empaths, futurists, and kindred spirits
