Intentional Collisions is an ongoing program, where Sprint Accelerator organizes a themed & condensed coworking day; bringing together thought leaders and people interested in similar subjects and/or working to solve common challenges.  When we share knowledge and collaborate, we can problem-solve together more rapidly! 

It's no secret that today's world is changing at an intense pace.  Digital Transformation is the profound and accelerating transformation of business activities, processes, competencies and models to fully leverage the changes and opportunities of digital technologies and their impact across society in a strategic and prioritized way, with present and future shifts in mind. 

Become exposed to individuals who are focused on creating digital transformations within their domain.  Hear from speakers who have deep expertise within digital transformation.  We'll be surrounded by thought leaders, corporate innovators, entrepreneurs and the generally curious.

Join us for the conversation!

The event runs from 1 PM to 5:30 PM, kicked off with a talk by our partner, Sprint, relating to specific challenges around Digital Transformation.  We’ll then hear from other speakers who bring different experience and viewpoints into the realm.
