June 21, 2013 – Creative destruction occurs when new companies or business models replace existing ones, transforming existing industries or creating entirely new ones. This phenomenon is especially pronounced in the tech industry, where such disruptions can dramatically and quickly change the competitive landscape. The panel “Deconstructing Creative Destruction” at this year’s TPI Aspen Forum will feature start-up founders, market analysts and academics who will attempt to unpack the black box of disruptive innovation by exploring how entrepreneurs take on established industries and the obstacles standing in their way.
Confirmed panelists are:
Danny Boice, Co-Founder and CTO, Speek
Lisa Falzone, Founder and CEO, Revel Systems
Joshua Gans, Professor of Strategic Management and Jeffrey C. Skoll Chair of Technical Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Rotman School of Management and Honorary Professor, Department of Economics, University of Toronto
Laura Martin, Senior Analyst, Entertainment, Cable and Media, Needham & Company LLC
The panel will be moderated by Scott Wallsten, TPI Senior Fellow and Vice President for Research.

This year’s theme is, “Creative Destruction and Growth: Policy Choices.” Discussion panels and speakers at the 2013 TPI Aspen Forum will focus on competition, privacy, data security, and other regulatory policies critical to the health of Internet economy.
