TechShake X IE Business School

In this talk, “A Renaissance of Renaissance Thinking – Why Business Needs The Arts,” Nir is challenging our way of thinking about the relations between art, entrepreneurship, science, and technology and about the relations between artists and innovation. He especially advocates the connection between artistic talent and business entrepreneurship, two areas that fuel each other and provide endless opportunities for mutual learning.

By revealing trends and upcoming changes in the world, he highlights the importance of being creative and adopting, what he calls, The Artistic Mindset. Using examples of leaders in the business world that have already capitalized on art and creativity, he raises questions that help to initiate a change in paradigm and break the ice between business professionals and the creative world.

A “mind-blowing journey to the importance of art in business”, “game changer session” and “unconventional and one of the unique talks I have ever attended” to name a few of the comments from his listeners.
