Chambers of Beautiful Business, Istanbul

Joint Idea is delighted to be a founder resident of the House of Beautiful Business, a global community focused on humanizing business in the age of machines. Now in its 3rd year as a pop-up counterpoint to Web Summit, the House carefully creates a positive vision of technology and humanity in a playful and intimate setting. Produced by the Business Romantic Society, the House - and the smaller individual Chambers of Beautiful Business being held by House residents around the world - develop frameworks, rituals, and practices for more beautiful ways of doing business with untethered imagination, open minds and hearts.

The Bridge To Our Exponential Humanity

What if business was more beautiful, more human, and even a source of good in the world?

Istanbul is a unique bridge between the East and the West, constantly swirling between the timeless and the untested, ready or not. The energies of Yin and Yang, and the living spirit of empires and religions are vibrantly displayed in countless layers of the duality we live out as a daily reality.

It is the city to explore and celebrate our deeper and more complete selves – to witness and transcend the conditioned mindset and patterns that shape our present reality and find clues leading to our full, often untapped, potential.

Together with a tribe of global game changers, we will be exploring the bridge to our exponential humanity, to help co-create a better future for all.

If this sounds like you, come join us.


Hosted by Joint Idea’s co-founders Eda Çarmıklı and Markus Lehto
