Scenario prompts are the first step of strategy development. Topics to consider are desalination, printing neural cells, longevity and climate tech start ups, bio-printing using stem cells, nano enhanced biomaterials, bio printing skin, an electronic tongue, vegetable butcher shops, avatars, morphing robots and my blog about “The Experience Machine: How Our Minds Predict and Shape Reality”.
Have a great weekend.
