What Works is a two-day exploration of ideas, talks and experiences hosted by SPACE10 and Startup Everywhere. Based out of Copenhagen we will look into how creative work will take place in the future by questioning and investigating trends and evolving dynamics that will change the way we live and work. We have invited a number of speakers to share their stories and ideas with us and start a conversation about work in general and where we see the society and world moving towards.
While we have the main event in Copenhagen; a number of satellite events will explore the same theme in cities like London, Hongkong, Tokyo, Budapest, Berlin, Lisbon and Blumenau where our event will be live streamed.
