Thinkers50Europe Live in Odense

October 4, 2016 at Odense, Denmark

Thinkers50 is the world’s platform for management ideas, bringing together business leaders with the best thinkers to explore what is hot, and what is next in business.

Michael Porter to Clay Christensen, blockchain technologies to hotspot creativity … from Harvard Business School to Hyderabad Tech Village, Fujitsu’s Californian campus to Haier’s Chinese HQ … Thinkers50 curates and connects the best ideas.

Thinkers50 Europe has established a new hub for these ideas, based in the heart of Denmark, the birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson, and the home of Europe’s leading robotics cluster. Odense is a city of the future, and a great place to think.

Earlier this year, we launched Thinkers50Europe in Odense, working with the Mayor and the municipality’s development team to establish an exciting new physical and digital platform to share the best ideas from the world, and across Europe.

Professor Rita McGrath of Columbia Business School said “At a time when a decent lifestyle seems beyond the aspirations of many, the Danish city of Odense is having none of it. With long-term thinking, integrated plans for infrastructure and development and long-term leadership, Odense has made quality of life the centerpiece of its development philosophy. Next up, a move to becoming a hub for innovation, which is already paying off in its leading position in the robotics industry – just in time for the Internet of Things. Keep an eye on developments from this surprising, intriguing place.”

Whitney Johnson, author of Disrupt Yourself, added “Odense, Denmark. Haven’t heard of it? You will. With Thinkers50 Europe now headquartered there, it’s about to become the Davos of business ideas.”
