Current roundtable members hail from Stanford, Harvard, MIT, Wharton, INSEAD, IE Business School, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Kobe University and other prestigious institutions around the world.
This year’s annual meeting took place in Seattle, mixing academics and representatives from Amazon, Boeing, Microsoft, REI, Starbucks and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, among others.
