This year’s conference takes place on Friday, February 27 in New York City, and founders Marc Alt and Jill Fehrenbacher have rounded up an impressive group of presenters that includes inventor and innovator Saul Griffith, NewDealDesign founder and principal designer Gadi Amit, Adam Aston of BusinessWeek, and Emily Pilloton, founder and executive director of Project H Design.
