Last updated on by

Last Friday, a panel of business leaders and entrepreneurs, including Richard Branson, got together to discuss the state of innovation, as part of the Virgin Disruptors series.

The panel was chaired by Guy Kawasaki (former Chief Evangelist of Apple), and featured Tony Fadell (CEO of Nest), Megan Smith (VP of Google[X], Leila Janah (Founder and CEO of Samasource), and Dave Evans (Chief Futurist at Cisco). During this event, the group discussed the obstacles that disruptive entrepreneurs are currently facing, such as regulations, bureaucracy, patent theft, and more.

It’s well worth the time spent watching the video of the panel, as well as checking out the rest of the content at Virgin Disruptors.
