Description

Monthly interactive EBBC (Entrepreneurial Business Book Club) session in Ghent.

This one centered around "Where Good Ideas Come From" by Steven Johnson:

The printing press, the pencil, the flush toilet, the battery--these are all great ideas. But where do they come from? What kind of environment breeds them? What sparks the flash of brilliance? How do we generate the breakthrough technologies that push forward our lives, our society, our culture? Steven Johnson's answers are revelatory as he identifies the seven key patterns behind genuine innovation, and traces them across time and disciplines. From Darwin and Freud to the halls of Google and Apple, Johnson investigates the innovation hubs throughout modern time and pulls out the approaches and commonalities that seem to appear at moments of originality.

Expect an interesting, introspective and practical session! We activate (y)our Knowledge!

Make sure to read the book (or a summary, youtube videos, podcasts, ...) beforehand!

DISCLAIMER: Author of the book will not be present. This is by and for the EBBC community.
