Twenty years after the concept of the challenger brand was coined, a new wave of challengers has been changing the way the categories around us think and behave. Financed by a new type of investor, harnessing emerging structural changes and new ways to build relationships with their consumers. They have generated enormous energy and excitement in their community.

They will draw on experiences and discuss how a challenger mindset can help give a clear focus. While sharing what aspects of a challenger mindset are going to be important to thrive.
