Time To Connect.

We all know that innovation is now needed more than ever. But we also know it has never been easy to succeed with innovation.

As innovation leaders and professionals, we play a crucial role for our organizations in the current context. Yet often it feels like we’re living on an island. We’re facing many new and old challenges, but we’re all too busy to breathe.

What’s working, what’s not? What keeps on bothering you, your team, your leadership? How can you improve your approach, find ways to work smarter and engage your stakeholders effectively- all still remotely?

Don't be too busy to innovate how you innovate.

Join Innov8rs Connect to take a step back, to reflect and refocus, so that you are better positioned to get results.

Tons of questions. Time to get answers.

Join 500+ cross-industry innovation leaders and professionals for the Innov8rs Connect series between November 2020 and March 2021.

You will
✓  Understand what’s working in other companies
✓  Benchmark your approach and performance
✓  Explore new approaches and develop new skills


Everything Corporate Innovation A-Z

Each of the six events in this series covers one key pillar for success.

You’ll dive into the most important themes crucial for  innovators across industries. Each event offers you a wide range of live sessions and peer circles to join, as well as content to consume and a diverse community to engage with.

You’ll leave with a deep understanding of what works (and what doesn’t) in other companies and industries, so that you can implement what you learned in order to improve your innovation outcomes.

Bring Your Team. Boost Your Impact.

You can focus on one key topic and get to the bottom of it. Or, you can divide and conquer to catch the best and latest on all key themes and trends.

With our team packages you get a great deal on tickets- but even greater outcomes.

With so many issues to tackle and so much change happening so fast, you will benefit from your team  joining too.


Not your typical event: you'll learn and do stuff.

You’re busy, of course. You let us know what your questions and challenges are, and based on that we’ll curate a program that is relevant for you (so you can invest your time wisely).

Forget pointless powerpoints. You’ll roll up your sleeves, and work with peers and experts in interactive small group sessions. And no theoretic blabla: you’ll focus on whatever is most important to you.

Whatever your challenges are, and regardless of industry and innovation maturity, you’ll leave with new, practical insights and an upgraded toolbox, to implement right away.

In the main week of the event, you can choose to join a diverse range of 20+ interactive small group sessions and peer circles as they happen. You can also host your own sessions to ask for feedback or share your approach.

For four weeks per event, starting one week prior to the main week and ending two weeks after, you can dive into our library with relevant content including session recordings from past events.

Also, on the community platform you can easily tap into the expertise and experiences of peers and experts, available to share their knowledge, provide guidance and discuss topics. All available 24/7, so you can engage whenever you want.


Live Sessions

In the event's main week you can join 20+ interactive group sessions. Talks, Workshops and Ask Me Anything's, all covering what you need to know and do now.

Peer Circles

Join facilitated and closed-door small-group conversations with peers from other companies and industries. Get unbiased feedback on your particular challenge, or share your story of success, failure and anything in between with others.


Of course, we can't cover everything in the Live Sessions and Peer Circles. For a full month, you get access to our library of high-quality content: session recordings from past events and conferences, as well as curated content from other sources.


Through the platform, for a full month, you'll be able to ask questions and join discussions with peers and experts. You can join dedicated networking and matchmaking sessions, to meet exactly whom you're keen to meet. The conference hallway, brought to live online.

"I understand how difficult these events are to run in the best of times. This is hands down the best virtual event I have attended."

"Wow, what have you created!? I am absolutely thrilled and overwhelmed by what I entered there yesterday. And hey, I'm only a basic member ...!"."
