Innovation and its impacts was the theme of the TED Talk given on 21 June by the owner of Disrupt Investimentos, co-owner of Valley Connection, alumnus EBAPE, Arthur Igreja. TED is a platform organization that connects people from all over the world to share inspiring ideas.

During the lecture, Arthur stressed that the technology will force an increase in the level of demand and the ability to adapt. In his words: “Everyone will have to refine their learning power, because the changes in a career will not be sparse events anymore, but a constant reality. The differential in the market will be precisely the elements that make us human, such as creativity and cognition”.

He currently holds a Ph.D. in Business Administration from the ESC University of Rennes in France, has professional and academic experience in more than 25 countries, as well as owning Disrupt Investimentos and co-owning the startups accelerator Valley Connection.
