We live in a world of abundance. Awash in knowledge, talent, technology and capital, we have what we need to build a thriving world, underpinned by a new growth model. But outdated, misdirected or, in some cases, straight-up bad leadership is holding us back, squandering these resources instead of securing the highest human return. At the heart of the challenge is this: obsolete metrics, mindsets and approaches prevent talent and capital from connecting with the problems that matter.

THE XYNTEO EXCHANGE CONCEPT

The Xynteo Exchange is a cross-industry, cross-sector platform for connecting ideas, talent and capital and fusing them into new growth opportunities that are fit for the future. The concept is simple: 36 hours to experience a ‘future-fit town’ where we are challenged not only to think and talk, but also to create and do, including:

A centre stage for world-class leaders to inspire and give strategic direction.

50 projects with the ambition to change humanity – connecting the right ideas with the right talent and capital.

Intense co-creation sessions to seed commercial solutions to human problems.
