Disruptive Innovation Festival

The Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF) is an online, open access event that invites thought-leaders, disruptors, innovators and learners to explore the question “The economy is changing - what do I need to know, experience and do?”.

With more than 300 sessions taking place around the world, the DIF runs for three weeks and tackles subjects such as biomimicry, the sharing economy, and internet of things. The  online festival is coordinated and accessible at thinkdif.co.
