About the session

Uncertainty, risks, and constant failures force a majority of new ideas and businesses to fail.

Written by a cohort of successful founders, mentors, and professionals from the entrepreneurial space, this book tells us why most new ideas fail to root and flourish.

It combines powerful concepts of customer launch philosophy, design thinking, lean startup, and action validation into a three-step framework to innovate—The Innovator's Model.

Every idea is unique, but there is a universal innovation process. Use the three-step framework (the Innovator’s Model), along with a market-focused business model (the Innovator’s Canvas) to innovate, make the change you seek, and build the future of your dreams.

About the speaker

Jean-Marie Buchilly is an ideas connector and a compulsive reader. He regularly writes posts on Medium in order to share his worldview, his thoughts and some actionable summaries of the books he read and he is now actively working on his own book that will combine two of his passions: wine and innovation. He is in charge of innovation for an international organization since 2018 and he also developed the participative innovation program for this same company in 2017. He started building innovation within the organization from scratch right after having attended altMBA by Seth Godin in 2016, a truly inspiring and transformational online course that showed him a powerful way to make change happen. Along this intrapreneurial journey, he had to face multiple challenges and found some great help in multiple books written by those who were either sharing their methodologies or their experiences.

Saumita started LetsAuthor in 2019, initiating a new era in the world of writing books. Her 8-year stint with Open Innovation at NineSigma inspired her to enter the entrepreneurial world, adapt Open Innovation into an unrelated area of book writing, and introduce the concept of Open Authoring. Her book, In the Arena is a proof-of-concept project for her to demonstrate Open Authoring and illustrate the magic of smartly utilizing the collective wisdom of intellectuals. She actively follows the ideas and knowledge shared in this book to grow her own venture.

Aditya Bhatnagar is an entrepreneur and strategist. He strategized and supported more than 10 businesses within 6-months during Covid times. With 6+ years of working experience in multiple industries including banking, education, health & fitness, technology, and retail, he has supported students, pre-launch founders (across Europe and UK) to develop understanding of business, innovation, management, and marketing. With an educational background of engineering, banking, marketing, and management he gives a broader-to-niches approach to businesses. Two-times awarded for his targeted results towards the business, he brings insightful strategy and actions on the table.

Simon Krystman is a passionate entrepreneur who has successfully set up and exited a number of businesses in the digital and innovation space over the past thirty years; most recently launching a suite of products for startups and early stage companies.
