2022 has been a difficult year for startups and businesses all across the globe. Not only have financial markets crashed and venture capital investment stalled as a result but phenomena like quiet quitting and the great resignation have also had a negative impact. With so many challenges presenting themselves, it is a difficult time to run a business and drive growth.
This uncertainty has led to organizations prioritizing optimization over the past couple of months, as well as paying special attention to upcoming trends. By doing these two things, organizations can better navigate turbulent times while also improving their operations to generate growth. Well, we got good news: This edition of Web Summit promises to be especially useful for those looking to do just that.
Taking place every year since being founded in 2009, Web Summit is the biggest tech event in the world. Each year, the event brings together some of the world’s leading speakers, companies, experts, and media outlets. This edition won’t be different , with some of the confirmed names including Changpeng Zhao, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Gleit, Geoff Ralston, Kathleen Breitman, Stewart Rogers, star journalist John Biggs, and of course, our own Jordan French.
As its tradition, Grit Daily will be hosting its Annual Speakers and Media Dinner during Web Summit. The fifth edition is set to take place in November and will feature Invisible Technologies’ Suzanne Rabicoff and Hayley Darden. Not only will participants get to enjoy excellent Portuguese food and wine but also learn from two of the biggest experts on what Invisible calls “Worksharing”.
By seamlessly orchestrating work between humans and machines, Invisible Technologies is providing a solution to the challenges most organizations face nowadays when looking to improve efficiency. So far, the company has helped over 200 clients across 20 industries to optimize processes that can’t be automated or outsourced. The benefits are obvious: Improved performance and employee engagement.
“Before Invisible, there were only two approaches to making companies more efficient: operational efficiency (which gave birth to Business Process Outsourcing) and automation (which gave birth to RPA and other tools). Invisible is pioneering a new approach — combining outsourcing and automation — called Worksharing,” Explained Invisible CEO Francis Pedraza in an interview with Forbes. “We make it easy to delegate your work — on a Zoom call, on our app, or over email. Practically overnight, your process will be running on our Digital Assembly Line, and we’ll be using a combination of operational excellence and automation to drive down unit costs over time.”
During the dinner, Invisible’s General Manager Suzanne Rabicoff and Director of Marketing Hayley Darden will share why companies like Klarna, ARK Invest, DoorDash, Bolt, Rhino, Artsy, and Mercado Libre are embracing Invisible’s solutions. The pair will also be at Web Summit, including at Forum.
The Fifth Edition of Grit Daily’s Speakers and Media Dinner will take place on November 2nd at IBO Restaurante from 19:00-22:00 WET (Lisbon local time). If you want to participate along with other speakers and media, make sure to grab one of a few limited tickets before they sell out.
