Everything corporate innovation from start to scale.

Regardless of where you are on your innovation journey, and no matter what industry you’re in, we’ve got you covered.

There will be more than 15 sessions in different tracks on the agenda. Based on your goals and needs, you’ll pick the sessions that are most relevant and interesting to you.

You’ll dive into topics like

It's Intimate

Past participants loved our event because it offers a safe space for learning, sharing and collaborating.

You’ll enjoy the open, personal and positive vibe, and being part of a tribe of 150+ corporate innovators looking for solutions to their challenges- like you.

It's Immersive

You’ll join several powerful and practical sessions, working on real issues- not just playing with theory.

More than a conference, this is a deep dive training offering you new insights, skills and mindsets.

It's International

You’ll become part of a truly global community before, during and after the event.

You’ll meet peers across industries, responsible for driving innovation at their organizations.  The diversity in the room will make for countless new insights, perspectives and outcomes.

This is a different type of event.

Loved by participants, trusted by brands.

Since 2011, we’ve hosted intimate, immersive, and impactful gatherings for corporate innovators to understand how their peers operate, to experiment with new methods and tools, and to learn essential skills.

We’ve already visited innovation hotspots like London, Munich, New York, Singapore, Stockholm, San Francisco, Toronto, Tel Aviv, Sydney, Paris and Los Angeles — welcoming thousands of innovators globally.

You’ll meet corporate innovators of all trades, all chasing similar objectives and facing similar challenges, across companies and industries:

  • Chief Innovation Officers, VP’s of Innovation, Innovation Leaders
  • Intrapreneurs or Corporate Entrepreneurs
  • Innovation (program) Directors
  • Heads of Labs, Incubators and Accelerators
  • Corporate Venturing, Strategy and Corporate Dvelopment Managers
  • R&D and Product Development Professionals
  • HR and Organizational Transformation Leaders

It's the people.

Beyond the high-quality sessions and diversity of speakers, past participants valued most meeting people in jobs like them, for countless and endless conversations. Many stay connected long after the conference, always just a phone call away.

You’ll connect, collaborate and co-create with peers. That’s how we design the event. That’s why we limit the number of participants. And past participants loved it.

Highlights Innov8rs LA, June 2018

Here's what your peers said about their experience.

// Hands down the best conference I’ve had the luxury of attending.
I have so many more great people in my world now and have a brain bursting with new ideas and concepts to explore.

// All the sessions I participated in were amazing.
Honestly, it’s very rare to attend a conference with so much enthusiasm and also the fact that it’s truly peer 2 peer.

// Amongst all conferences I’ve been to, #IntraCnf ranks up there.
Partly because of the great speakers and content; mostly because of the well curated group of corporate innovators and interaction between them.

// A big acknowledgement for the only conference format I have been to that actually created meaningful impact with me.

// #Intracnf Stockholm was the most varied and beneficial conference I’ve attended over the past 15 years.

// It was truly incredible to no longer feel isolated.
The community development and networking were top notch.
