Working with Giants

Mar 10, 2017

2:00pm – 3:00pm CT

Innovation isn't just happening in garages in Silicon Valley, it's happening all over the world in coffee shops, spare bedrooms, and co-working spaces. How can the largest companies in the world tap into this groundswell of innovation and combat the Innovator's Dilemma?

Giants are naturally risk averse and slow moving. How can they filter through the noise of thousands of startups to find the real world changers who have solutions to their problems?

Large organizations can be hard to work with, too. They have legal and procurement departments that demand costly pre-requisites before doing business.

Learn best practices from innovators at some of the largest companies in the world.
