London – 7 June 2019 – Bain & Company joins forces with the Founders Forum, a private network of the world’s leading digital and technology entrepreneurs, corporate CEOs and future leaders, to support the 2019 Forum. The partnership brings together Bain’s digital experts and the Forum’s diverse network to discuss the most prevalent issues unfolding across business and society.
As the impact of technology on business becomes more pervasive, the bar to compete and win in the digital future is set ever higher. Bain & Company approaches digital in a holistic context, helping companies achieve truly transformative results. This partnership will enable Bain’s digital experts to lead and engage in open debates, brainstorming, and problem solving on how companies need to evolve for the digital future.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Founders Forum,” said Elizabeth Spaulding, co-head of Bain & Company’s global Digital practice. “They have cultivated an intimate, yet collaborative, atmosphere of entrepreneurs focused on bettering their own businesses by helping one another. We look forward to participating in those discussions and contributing our perspectives as these companies look at new ways to fuel innovation, embrace the possibilities of disruption and accelerate their digital transformations.
We believe in the power of making connections across the ecosystem between founders, corporates, government and investors - which is why we founded our Bain Innovation Exchange. We see the Founder's Forum partnership as an important way to extend the power of building that network for our clients.”
Now in its 14th year, the Founders Forum hosts a series of international, invite-only events that convene some of the world’s most renowned digital and tech entrepreneurs, corporate CEOs, star VCs, scientists, academics and policy makers in an immersive and co-creation setting focused addressing on important business, economic and social issues.
The annual flagship event takes place in London, 12th and 13th June, and will draw more than 600 attendees with exclusive curated experiences offered for attendees. Globally, the firm will also partner on their other events hosted in Boston (1st Oct) and New York (2nd - 3rd Oct).
Brent Hoberman, Co-Founder and Chairman at the Founders Forum, added: “We are delighted to welcome Bain & Company to the Founders Forum family. Our ambition has always been to bring together the smartest minds, top founders and best companies together to solve the world’s biggest problems. Bain’s holistic and transformative approach to digital will help the Forum’s diverse network fuel innovation and accelerate their digital transformations.”
