PURPOSE BEYOND PROFIT

Barcelona, Spain - IESE Business School

What is Doing Good Doing Well

Doing Good and Doing Well (DGDW) is an annual conference entirely organized and run by IESE Business School students. The initiative began in 2001 when a group of students in the Responsible Business Club wanted to go beyond the classroom and beyond the case studies by inviting leading professionals and thought leaders to campus to engage with students. Now it has become an annual tradition and has grown to the largest student-run conference in Europe. Each year, students pick a theme for the conference related to responsible business. It’s an opportunity to hear directly from professionals about the challenges and opportunities they experience on a day-to-day basis, and how their jobs and organizations are interconnected with society. The conference format is typically divided into keynote speeches, panel discussions, case competitions, workshops, career exchanges, and networking events, divided in 2-days. In addition to IESE Business School students, the conference attracts students from other leading business schools such as INSEAD, LBS, IE, ESADE, Columbia, Tuck, CEIBS and many others. We also welcome professionals from across the world.

ABOUT THE LATEST EDITION - 2016




Innovative business models that create meaningful impact


Over the last few years, we have seen the emergence of business models that have disrupted industries, changed behaviour and made a real impact to society. From Microfinance to Impact Investing, to the Circular Economy and Social Entrepreneurship, business and society have developed sustainable models that create real impact. Aided by the technology boom, concepts like the sharing economy and e-learning have come to life, and are now bringing real change to the industries in which they operate.

This year, the Doing Good Doing Well conference focused on some of these topical innovations that are changing the face of society and business. Particularly, on how they can engender a more responsible business culture. For example, does the sharing economy really make a positive social and environmental impact? Does the rise of impact investing provide social entrepreneurs with the right tools to start impact-driving businesses? What are some of the new and innovative ways of providing financing and banking services to the poorest in our society? How can we use design thinking to create solutions to alleviate poverty? We debated and discussed these and other topics, and were inspired by keynote speeches from some of the people and the companies that are on the forefront of this innovation led transformation.

Thank you to all participant, speakers, sponsors and IESE Business School for their contribution in making this conference a success. We now invite you to review the DGDW 2016 conference in 3 minutes of video!
