WHAT IS DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION?
In 1997 Harvard Business School’s Professor Clayton M. Christensen published his groundbreaking book The Innovator’s Dilemma where he introduced his theory of Disruptive Innovation. Now in entering its’ sixth year, the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards, helmed by Tribeca co-founder Craig Hatkoff, in collaboration with Professor Christensen, celebrate disruptive innovation across the full spectrum of traditional and non-traditional domains ranging from technology, biomed, politics, education, healthcare, spirituality, religion, economics, sports, fashion and philanthropy. The awards focus on breakthroughs occurring at the intersection of technology and culture where frequent clashes and resistance to change impede social progress and solutions for some of the world’s most vexing problems. TDIA serves as a living laboratory for advances in disruptive innovation theory and brings together the world’s most fascinating disruptors whose stories will inspire anyone with an interest in the process of innovation.
