About the session

Exploring emerging, integrated approaches to corporate open innovation. How can large companies reach outside their 4-walls to exploit the insights, expertise and investments of the broader open innovation ecosystem? We will explore how corporate innovation programs can spot emerging trends & threats, exploit emerging technologies, identify new partner, build, invest and acquisition opportunities – all in the service of accelerating innovation outcomes, building competitive advantage and driving growth.

We will focus on how benchmark corporate open innovation programs are breaking down internal silos, leveraging the broader ecosystem to gather “outside-in” perspectives on disruption and are providing a common framework, tools and methodologies to unlock integrated build/buy/partner/invest decisions.
