From our coverage of during Denver Startup week we look at a special panel that speaks to the potential line between causing disruption and being evil. Hosted by Anthony Franco, Managing Editor of Talking Offline.

One entrepreneur’s innovation may be another person’s unemployment – Are your company policies fundamentally “evil” or are they “disruptive” and how do we tell the difference?

Topics Covered
Should a leader be concerned how his company’s innovations impact other competitive industries?

Why are some companies (like Uber) often described as ‘evil’, while others (like Apple) are considered disruptive?

Do some industries demand aggressive behavior in order to have innovation take place?

Draw a bright line for us – what behaviors would you consider being aggressive to the point of being called ‘evil’?

What moral standards should all companies follow?

Are there any current moral standards that need to be sun-setted?

Panelists Included
Maryanne Rose @SpenDifference
CEO/President SpenDifference LLC

Andy Brandt @brandtroo
Co-founder at SQFT Mobile Application

Paul Farnsworth
Technology Executive (CIO,SVP,VP)
