- Innovation Pioneers UK
February 5, 2020
4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Calling all Corporate Innovators to a meeting of minds and voices. Join innovation peers, disruptors and thought leaders for a few hours of outcome focused learning and sharing like no other. We can help you to address your key innovation challenges. Find out how and where below:
Over the years, we have spoken to and worked with many people, like you, who work in ‘innovation’, in all sorts and sizes of organisation.
A common theme comes up in these conversations and interactions – that their work is often isolated from the main organisation and needs to be better communicated and connected.
We have looked at several ways to address this challenge and have scoured the world to understand if this challenge is being addressed well anywhere.
In the process, we discovered an organisation in Sweden, driven by and run by innovation practitioners, called ‘Innovation Pioneers’. This is an experience-sharing network, by invitation only, where, in a non-competitive environment, participants learn from each other, pose problems, test their thinking, and develop new pathways, beyond the constraints of their own organisation. It is true ‘open innovation’ in practice.
There are several things to like about Innovation Pioneers. It is non-commercial, only similarly interested people attend, and it is wholly participative, in that you only get out what you put in. It also has a goal to benefit society beyond our own firms.
We like the concept so much that we have decided to bring Innovation Pioneers to the UK.
An exclusive event for you!
We would like to invite you to attend the first symposium of Innovation Pioneers UK (we plan to hold 3-4 each year) on 5th February 2020 at FORA, 35-41 Folgate St, Spitalfields, London E1 6BX starting at 16:00 and going through to 21:00.
This first event will be an Open Discussion of Your Core Innovation Challenges with a mix of Corporate Innovators, Disruptors & Thought Leaders. We will look to capture and understand these as a framework for future symposia, focused on bringing real world solutions to real world innovation challenges.
Given this is not commercially driven and there is no sponsorship, we need to make a small charge (£99+VAT per person [£118.80]) to cover the room hire and drinks & food, with any surplus being used for future events.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with us and we’ll fix a time to talk, but we would very much like you to come along, enjoy the interaction, and if you like it, to join Innovation Pioneers UK.
