1871 Chicago – Kicking off #UnlockingInnovation we have 1871 CEO, Betsy Ziegler. We talked with her about the difference between sustaining and disruptive innovation (and why the latter is so critical to staying on top), what motivates her to take big leaps, the “exponential times” we’re living in and how that affects her business, the problem of “innovation theater,” and the advice she gave to Bette Midler!

#UnlockingInnovation is a podcast by EX3 Labs, produced in partnership with 1871 Chicago.
