What's next for Corporate Innovation?

Whilst innovation remains a top priority for every CEO, we have again witnessed this year that when markets are uncertain and costs need to be cut, the innovation function is also amongst the first to be impacted.

As a function, we’re still figuring out how we contribute to our organizations’ top and bottom line in sustainable and scalable ways.

The year 2023 so far brought many challenges to tackle, and yet as many opportunities to explore. Never a dull moment in corporate innovation… so they say.

Looking forward to 2024, what’s coming at us, and how can we as innovators make a difference?

Join this global conversation with leading experts sharing their perspective about what will (not) change for corporate innovation in 2024.

It's not just a lecture that you'll passively consume... You are invited to actively participate sharing your outlook and experiences too.
