Whitney Johnson

2012 Speaker

Whitney Johnson is the president and co-founder of Clayton Christensen’s investment firm Rose Park Advisors (Disruptive Innovation Fund), and author of “Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream” (Bibliomotion, 2012).  A former Institutional Investor-ranked sell-side analyst on Wall Street, Johnson is a contributor to the Harvard Business Review, was recognized as a top ten business blogger by Marcus Buckingham, and is one of Inc Magazine’s “12 People to Follow on Twitter in 2012.”  She also serves as a senior advisor to the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards, and is a TEDx speaker.  When Johnson isn’t  picking stocks, she’s taking stock in her dreams and encouraging others to invest in theirs, whether sitting on boards, keynoting industry conferences, or lecturing at Harvard Business School.  Johnson likes investing in undervalued companies, but taking stock in people and their dreams is a thrill like no other.
