The seventh annual Business Innovation Factory (BIF-7) took place Sept 20-21, 2011 in Providence, RI.  This TED-esque event invited dozens of presenters from a variety of fields to share their story in 15 minutes or less.  Brilliantly executed and stacked with industry-leading experts, BIF-7 was a great place to meet people of diverse professions that we might not normally have come into contact with.   This curious blend of individuals lead to unexpected networking and the generation of several big new ideas.

BIF featured so many intriguing presenters and attendees that we’ve decided to do a feature series.  Stay tuned as we release weekly interview/conversations with some of the best presenters, including:

Daniel Pink author of Drive and A Whole New Mind
