Solutions Exhibition – HBS Hacks: Solving for the Future of Work in San Francisco

May 18, 2018
5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
San Francisco

The world of work is constantly changing at an ever-increasing pace. Technological breakthroughs are upending traditional work everywhere—from grocery store self-checkout stands to software automating bookkeeping—and causing both displacement and new opportunities for workers. Many see it as an inevitable brewing storm. But is there a way society can be better prepared for it?

HBS Hacks, an innovative, hands-on, interactive event, brings together alumni from diverse backgrounds to tackle the question of the future of work in San Francisco. How can displaced workers best be redeployed? How can business, government, and nonprofit leaders come together to mitigate the effects of worker displacement? How should entrants to the workforce best prepare themselves?

The Solutions Exhibition enables you to see the culmination of a full day event where teams have earlier crafted prototype solutions for testing and evaluation in industry, the City of San Francisco, local colleges, and nonprofits. Hear new creative approaches and listen to cross-sector judging panels react to the feasibility and sustainability of the ideas. Meet a network of cross-sector leaders eager to take the winning ideas to the next level over the course of the next year, with an HBS Community Partners team ready to help facilitate the process.
