Event Information

Title: Keynote 2022


Join Alexis Ohanian – co-founder of Reddit and founder of Seven Seven Six – as he sheds new light on how creating and embracing disruption can amplify growth and produce positive transformations.

Moderated by Starr Marcello, deputy dean of MBA Programs at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business – and an expert in entrepreneurship and innovation, this intimate conversation with Alexis will tap into his vast knowledge of today’s new business realities as he addresses many of the disruptions that are changing the future of business and how they will translate to the foodservice industry, including crypto currency, web 3.0, and historic social and cultural shifts. What do these disruptions mean to our industry, and how can we prepare for and embrace them?
