More on the participants in the current cohort on the website.
What is the fourth (4th) industrial revolution? According to the World Economic Forum, it represents a fundamental change in the way we live, work and relate to one another. It is a new chapter in human development, enabled by extraordinary technology advances commensurate with those of the first, second and third industrial revolutions. These advances are merging the physical, digital and biological worlds in ways that create both huge promise and potential peril. The speed, breadth and depth of this revolution is forcing us to rethink how countries develop, how organizations create value and even what it means to be human. The fourth industrial revolution is about more than just technology-driven change; it is an opportunity to help everyone, including leaders, policy-makers and people from all income groups and nations, to harness converging technologies in order to create an inclusive, human-centered future. The real opportunity is to look beyond technology and find ways to give the greatest number of people the ability to positively impact their families, organizations and communities.
On May 29, 2020, Louis Lehot spoke to 4thly’s spring 2020 cohort on a broad range of early stage company topics, including formation, intellectual property protection and engaging with counsel. Louis also gave advice on how global businesses can access the United States. Presentation materials are available on the website.
