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?

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. My team recently built software for the Amazon Alexa so people can actually talk about their money with Capital One. – Jim Kresge, Head of Digital Commerce Engineering for Capital One
