Overview

Wellspring and The Inovo Group are pleased to continue our popular Innovation Roundtable series. Each roundtable is a facilitated discussion group of senior-level innovation leaders. This event is free but limited to 15 participants (invite only). To request an invite, please complete the form below.

DISCUSSION TOPIC: Managing the relationship between the Corporate Innovation Group and the Business Units

Many organizations struggle to optimize the relationship between the Innovation group(s) and Business Units. How does the firm decide where to place innovation priorities, in both the short- and long-term? Who holds the budget for exploratory research and disruptive bets? What’s the right way to transition early-stage innovation projects from Innovation to the Business? This roundtable is a chance for Corporate Innovation leaders and Business Unit innovators to discuss the latest practices in realizing growth opportunities without upending the very businesses that must fund and help market them.

Why Attend?

We designed the Innovation Roundtable format to be as intimate and personalized as possible. In the innovation management world, the best practices are constantly changing. You need a community of peers where you can meet other leaders and learn from each other.

At our roundtables, there are no Powerpoints, no sales pitches, and no gimmicks. We’ll have three hours of group discussion and dialogue on a key topic of shared importance – and that’s it.

Our roundtables are a trusted networking forum for senior innovation leaders at some of today’s leading companies, including AT&T, BNY Mellon, Bose, Caterpillar, Exelon, ExxonMobil, Mercedes-Benz, PepsiCo, Pfizer, Philips, US Cellular, Whirlpool, and many more.
