Toward a Future of Responsible Innovation

Jon Zieger, Responsible Innovation Labs
In conversation with: Riitta Katila, Stanford University

Responsible Innovation Labs executive director Jon Zieger explores what success will look like for his early-stage nonprofit, and points to some possible leverage points for driving responsible innovation in the 21st century. He emphasizes the role that consistent frameworks can play in helping companies make better decisions, and also discusses the role that capital allocations like VCs and private equity firms can play if and when they adopt ethical standards as criteria for investment decisions.
