Corporate and industrial acceleration is more important than ever this year as many corporations will need to adapt or change their business models, ways of doing business, and future strategies rapidly in response to the dramatic changes brought about by the pandemic and the economic troubles on the horizon. More than before, we believe that corporates will need to engage with innovators, new ventures, and develop their own internal innovation engines.
The event will feature a combination of panel discussions, case study presentations and fireside chats to share ideas and best practices, and shape challenges and future research topics for the coming year. It will also provide a unique opportunity for this community of professionals and academics to network and make contact with each other.
Speakers include Mercedes-Benz Head of Open Innovation Dr Philipp Gneiting and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Steve Blank.
