Driving Innovation Capabilities through Culture, Design and Partnerships
There is no doubt, that the world is becoming a more competitive place. The arrival of the ‘digital age’ has lead to accelerated innovation, as new technologies have drastically changed how the economy and businesses within it operate on a daily basis.
Such rapid change creates a favorable environment for emerging businesses to flourish, but less so for the corporate, with their long-established traditions and protocols. The creative spirit and simplistic organizational structure often seen in Startups, contrasts starkly with working cultures in larger businesses which tend to stifle rather than facilitate innovation.

The Summit has been developed to showcase cutting edge case studies on the topics of:
Selecting and launching a corporate innovation model, think Innovation Labs, Accelerators, Hackathons etc.
Preparing a business case for buyin and showcasing how investment into innovation labs can translate into sustainable financial gain
Partnering with external stakeholder’s to drive collaborative innovation
Preparing for the workforce of the future and attracting and retaining talent for innovation teams
