Not Impossible Labs

A recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award and listed on Ad Age’s “Creativity 50” list as one of the most influential creative people, Mick Ebeling has sparked a movement of pragmatic, inspirational innovation. As a career producer and filmmaker and now founder and CEO of Not Impossible, Mr. Ebeling harvests the power of technology and story to change the world. He founded Not Impossible, a multiple award-winning social innovation lab and production company, on the premise that nothing is impossible. His mantra of “commit, then figure it out” allows him to convene a disparate team of hackers, doers, makers and thinkers to create devices that better the world by bringing accessibility for all. This unconventional approach brought to life highly acclaimed initiatives such as the EyeWriter, Project Daniel, Don’s Voice and, most recently, Music Not Impossible, which brought the ability to draw back to a paraplegic street artist, gave 3D-printed arms to Sudanese amputees and provided a “voice” to a patient with Lou Gehrig’s disease who hadn’t spoken in 15 years. Working with a wide array of Fortune 500 companies, Mr. Ebeling not only pushes the bar on innovation, he also shares the emotionally resonating story of doing so. He was named one of Wired’s Agents of Change and is a two-time SXSW Innovation Award winner. Mr. Ebeling is on a mission to provide “technology for the sake of humanity.” By tapping into a community of passionate and talented engineers, makers, idea generators and storytellers, Mr. Ebeling is making the inconceivable, the unbelievable and the impossible not impossible.

Opening Session – Parker B. Francis Distinguished Lecture: The Fallacy of the Impossible

Presented by Mick Ebeling at 8:00 AM on Monday, March 23rd.

Mick Ebeling, CEO, Not Impossible Labs, has passionately studied the concept of “Impossible.” All the modern conveniences we see around us were once considered “impossible” by people who didn’t know any better. Synthetic fabrics, cell phones and digital watches (not to mention cars and computers) were all figments of the imagination until inspiration met execution…
