This past June, chapters around the world gathered to talk about the monthly theme of ‘Food.’ In particular, Stockholm featured the likes of David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl Andersen of Green Kitchen Stories who spoke about their blog. Green Kitchen Stories inspires people around the world to cook super-tasty, healthy vegetarian recipes using only natural ingredients.

Above, are some photos of Thin Oat and Ginger Crisps—some tasty looking cookies you can bake yourself!

At our event in Ottawa this April, Harley Finkelstein, entrepreneur, lawyer, and the Chief Platform Officer (CPO) at Shopify spoke on the future of retail—part of our themed month around “The Future."

Harley speaks on how “technology is eating the world" and how in an economy where everything is becoming democratized—fundraising, prototyping, selling, fulfillment—behemoth companies are going to find it harder to compete with the small, creative organizations. An excellent watch for large corporate CEOs and small business owners alike.

Watch the talk.
