Regardless of the industry, an organisation lives or dies by how it innovates.
On March 23rd and 24th, 2011, The Economist convened our second annual Ideas Economy: Innovation event, this year focusing on entrepreneurship in a disruptive world. This summit attracted executives who believe in the power of innovation to transform our businesses, our lives and our planet.
Edited in London since 1843, The Economist is a weekly international news and business publication, offering clear reporting, commentary and analysis on world current affairs, business, finance, science and technology, culture, society, media and the arts. As noted on its contents page, The Economist's goal is to "take part in a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress." Printed in five countries, worldwide circulation is now over one million, and The Economist is read by more of the world's political and business leaders than any other magazine.
