About

If you are working in Robotics that’s awesome! However there will be secondary effects for workers displaced by new technology. This kickstarter campaign will fund the initial start- up for a think tank with the mission to provide innovative strategies for policy makers and thought leaders who represent the working class.  Bluecollarthinktank will have the following outputs: Original white papers from experts/ Events featuring in depth conversations between tech experts, labor representatives, industry strategists and faith leaders/Podcast that will bring the style of Studs Terkel back to face workers challenges in the 21st century and relevant news provided on bluecollarthinktank.com and @bcthinktank. Please reach out to us contact@bluecollarthinktank.com and thanks!

Risks and challenges

Hello, I am Scott Dennis the founder of bluecollarthinktank, I augment my twenty years in private industry with an MBA focused on supply chain & leadership. Having spent my career in international logistics and labor management the unintended consequences of optimizing business operations through technology has been made clear to me. I have the necessary skill sets to build a strong team and to scale up a think tank that fills an urgent need. The risk here is waiting too long to unpack the serious issues that workers being replaced by robotics face. Help us get started so that we can provide that clearing house of positive strategies for your friends and families.
