I was forced to innovate

Casey Neistat (Entrepreneur, film director, producer, and creator of YouTube videos) opened the conference with his inspiring speech. Growing up, he was often forced to innovate. Risk taking was never really a choice for him, but the only option he had. At one point in his life, the young father decided that he wanted to become a film maker and started to pursuit his dream. With minimal resources, he achieved a maximal output inspired through creativity and innovation.

To visualize this, he tells of an inflection point in his career. He had a deal with Nike to create three TV commercials. But instead, he took their money and travelled around the world and tried to achieve his own goals and ideas.
