Innovation in NYC

By bentonscholars on April 6, 2013

New_DisruptionIn the fall of 2011, a small group of Benton Scholars spent the day in NYC meeting with Colgate alumni Craig Hatkoff and Jeff Fager.  Fager, the President of CBS News and Executive Producer of “60 Minutes” showed the group the CBS headquarters and led a discussion on the changing role of CBS and how technology is being adopted by the organization. Hatkoff, a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, hosted the group for lunch at his home for a discussion of “disruptive innovation” and the role that technology is playing in reshaping certain market sectors and creating new ones.  The group has maintained a continuing relationship with Hatkoff since that initial conversation and had a book discussion over Skype later that year.  In addition, a small group of Benton Scholars was able to attend the “Tribeca Innovator’s Award Ceremony” at NYU in the Spring of 2012.
