Creating purposeful enterprises

This is a past edition.

This year's edition is ➔ Intersection 24.

This is Intersection 22, the 8th leading conference about Enterprise Design. We bring together a global community with the shared ambition to design better enterprises.

Accelerated by a world facing unseen crises and opportunities, our relationship with enterprises has changed. It's no longer enough to simply exchange office time for salaries, to make and sell things for mere consumption, or to go after profits for their own sake. Instead, those enterprises we find worthwhile engaging with are increasingly driven by a clear purpose: implementing the right changes for meaningful and humane work, valuable relationships with customers and others, useful products and services, and added value for society and the planet.

Since its first 2014 edition, Intersection conference has been the pioneering event for those who want to see better enterprises emerge around them. We believe that we can overcome the paradigm of traditional corporate or institutional organisations. Enterprises can be purposefully created to add value to people’s lives, and deliver on their promises. For our comeback after a virtual event and a year’s pause, Intersection 2022 in Stockholm seeks to inspire and equip our participants to recreate their organisations. From a shared purpose to making the enterprise deliver, as a vehicle for human agency at scale.

Beyond the next startup, product or project, this is about designing enterprises that pursue a purpose and establish and maintain good relationships with their customers, staff, investors, and other actors. We aim to innovate and transform enterprises and their ecosystem relationships, across public and private sectors, and with actual outcomes.
