Keynote Speaker

Greg Larkin

Founder, Chief Punk at Punks & Pinstripes

In 2015, Greg Larkin was one of 2000 Fortune 100 executives who quit their jobs to join startups. By 2020, on the eve of the pandemic that number increased 4-fold to 8,000. Many of the startups launched by this ‘Entrepreneur Exodus’ achieved astounding growth during the pandemic filling the void left by banks, medical device manufacturers, and governments who were too slow to respond. In this talk Greg Larkin will take you into the epicenter of this new wave of disruption. We will meet the leaders of the entrepreneur exodus and explore the hard choices that entrenched companies need to make to remain resilient.

What Our Attendees Are Saying

The event was a pleasure for me – many thanks for the opportunity! You guys are doing some amazing things and truly making a difference.

Mark Thorsby, Front Wheel Consulting

Fantastic show! I was sorry I couldn’t stay for the full day, but even a partial day with you guys recharges the spirit and re-energizes the soul! I just had a great conversation with an Association CEO who was profiled in one of your presentations at the Innovation Summit. The speaker helped me with the introduction. I gained really valuable insights from her and would never have had the chance if it wasn’t for the event. The network works!
