Thursday, April 13, 9-10am

A conversation with two entrepreneurs who are enabling the future of work beyond the 9 to 5 workday and outside of the traditional office environment.

Michele Romanow from Dragon’s Den, founder of SnapSaves, a grocery couponing app, which she later sold to Groupon. Romanow’s latest venture is Clearbanc, a financial services platform targeting North American’s 50 million freelancers and self-employed contractors.

Allan Lau is the co-founder and CEO of Wattpad, a global multiplatform entertainment company. The top-rated Wattpad app is home to user-generated content by writers of all experience levels, featuring short stories, novels, and poetry. The company has raised more than $90 million to expand its platform and has inked deals with TV producers and big media companies to adapt some of its authors’ stories for the screen.

Both companies are enabling authors, freelancers, entrepreneurs and creators to find new audiences, and are using technology to fill some of the roles of a traditional employer.

Lau and Romanow will speak about how flexible work is changing the workplace, how software and online services can help freelancers and full-time employees alike, and how companies can enable their workers to be more creative and think different.
