Capital One recently gathered some of the brightest minds in Boston’s innovative business arena to discuss how they are pushing the status quo in their areas of expertise.
Through a panel discussion at the Paramount Theater during the interactive portion of the Outside The Box arts festival happening at Boston Common through July 17, local entrepreneurs and business leaders spoke about what drives them to reimagine their day-to-day operations.
Panel moderator Mario Armstrong of the Today Show kicked off the event with a simple, yet very appropriate, question: What does it mean to reimagine your perspective, regardless of background?
It’s about taking ideas that have been so prominent in an industry, and taking a completely different look at them. – Wombi Rose, CEO and cofounder of Lovepop Cards.
We think that a company should be structured for a world with technology. And if you’re built for technology, you’re built to take advantage of all the talent in the world. – Pat Petitti, CEO and Co-Founder of HourlyNerd
We want people to be able to start businesses and pursue their dreams and do what they want and get after that in a nimble way so they don’t get locked into a long-term commitment. – Dave McLaughlin, General Manager, Eastern U.S. and Canada, WeWork
We spend a lot of time thinking about how technology is going to change the world and what does that mean for our company.

We want to connect with our customer wherever she is. Whether it’s reimagining our mobile experience, pushing the envelope, and we’re always looking for new things. – Feng Chang, Director of Digital Marketing Strategy, Rue La La
