We’re delighted to be hosting a session at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum this week, looking at how young people can shape tomorrow’s world.

The session, titled “Disrupt to stabilize: how youth are shaping the economy”, brings together young people, innovators and policy makers to examine how we can bridge the generational divide to boost global prosperity in the future economy.

The event features an array of top-class speakers from across the business spectrum:

  • Josh Giegel, Co-founder and CTO, Virgin Hyperloop One
  • Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO, Uber Technologies
  • Jacqueline Novogratz, CEO, Acumen
  • Linda Rottenberg, CEO, Endeavor
  • Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO of Chobani
  • Moderated by: Josh Steiner, Senior adviser, Bloomberg LP

In a world in which half the population is under 30, the young generation is already having a profound effect on the ways in which businesses and societies function, with some clear challenges – for instance:

  • Less than 2% of those involved in key policy making process are young people;
  • Millennials have a spending power of $2.45 trillion – growth will come for businesses who can best adapt to their needs;
  • In business, the average age of top 500 company board members is 62.

Under-35s remain under-represented in the global economy despite their increasing leadership role – this session will examine how this challenge can be tackled to build a brighter and more prosperous future.
