The relationship between Sci-Fi and entrepreneurship
1522_ 3/26/14 - Our Silicon Flatirons Center's 2014 Entrepreneurship Conference, on the afternoon of March 14th, 2014, analyzed the relationship between Sci-Fi and entrepreneurship. Sci-Fi writers and entrepreneurs both innovate to "create the future." Looking at the relationships, similarities and synergies between the two disciplines, the Conference's discussion focused on three primary topics. First, to explore what entrepreneurs and innovators have learned from science fiction and what science fiction might suggest about the entrepreneurial opportunities ahead. The Conference then discussed the potential ethical cautions that science fiction can provide and the role of entrepreneurs and the government in being attentive to these ethical concerns. Finally, focusing on the process of creation that occurs during entrepreneurial innovation and the construction of science fiction, how the processes are similar or different, and what the two crafts can learn from each other.
