The Informal Economy Symposium

Scott Smith talks about the informal economy as a thriving parallel economy which is shaping our approaches to supply chains, innovation and development. Big Science and Technology is becoming vastly more bottom-up, infused with informal ideas, and as a result, will transform in the next decade.

Scott Smith is the founder of Changeist, a foresight and innovation lab that develops and explores speculative futures. Scott´s work on macro trends and emerging scenarios focuses on established, informal and emerging practices, and is used by commercial clients, non-profits and NGOs to explore new opportunity spaces.

Claro Partners hosted the first Informal Economy Symposium in Barcelona. Our goal was to abandon the conventional idea that the informal economy is the other economy. The symposium elaborated on its expanding scope, socio-economic value and the possibilities for established businesses to meaningfully collaborate and participate.

The event brought together leading businesses, thinkers, and practitioners for two days of keynote speakers, panels and workshops. Participants walked away with the raw materials, building blocks, and inspiration to develop new business models and innovation methods for the next economy.
