Driving your business forward through unifying external venturing, partnership and portfolio growth

Technology growth and innovation through effective scouting and successful corporate venturing initiatives.

As the technological market speeds ahead, gaining more momentum with each new breakthrough, it is critical for companies to gain a competitive advantage to solidify their position among the top innovative leaders. Capitalizing on external innovation and strategic partnerships is key to fostering strong long term growth. Through these partnerships and effective scouting companies can further disrupt the traditional innovation market and drive portfolio development.

This summit brings leading innovation, R&D and corporate venturing executives together from an array of top companies across different industries.

Key topics to be explored this year will be:

  • Promoting dynamic innovation through non-traditional partnerships
  • Identifiying key metrics to measure true technology success
  • Maintaining innovation momentum amidst corporate evolution
  • CVC vs VC = which is best for start-ups in the long term?
  • Digitalization as game changing disruption

Who should attend?

The executives that will realise the greatest benefit through attendance are Senior Vice Presidents, Vice Presidents, Directors, Heads and Managers of:

  • Innovation
  • Research and Development
  • Corporate Venturing
  • Scouting
  • Open Innovation
  • External partnerships & alliances
  • Technology
  • Science

avenues:

ILF Networking Group

Anonymous’ enables its members to,
• Share existing and create new knowledge around innovation;
• Engage deeply with and between member companies;
• Benchmark within and across member companies;
• Keep up to date with latest development in innovation.

Founded in 1983 by Professor Knut Holt in Norway, ISPIM is the oldest, largest and most active innovation association in Europe, rapidly expanding in the Americas and Asia.

AVENTIS

Vice President, Head of Disease Groups

I have enjoyed the meeting and was in fact very positively surprised. It was very good to get this cross-industry feedback and I took back quite a few refreshing ideas which are worthwhile to follow up. This was definitely no waste of time and I will look forward to E.N.G.’s next meeting.

COLBOND

Global Director R&D

Excellent networking opportunity in which practices and experiences are shared between large and small players in the industry.

BURGER KING

Innovation & Commercialisation Manager EMEA

A very well organised conference with a great selection of varied delegates and speakers. I found it an excellent opportunity to network with new people who I wouldn’t have had the chance to meet in another forum.

LONZA

Senior Vice President, Head of Chemical Research & Developme

Rich and vibrant conference, with an excellent mix of speakers from SME, mid-sized, and large companies.

HEINEKEN

Group Innovation Manager

Plenty of time built into the programme to allow delegates to discuss ideas & approaches and develop contacts.

BARILLA

Product Development Director - Soft Categories

It’s a nice way to become more open. And being open is a promise for innovation

DIAGEO

Global Innovation & Brand Change Director

A great opportunity to obtain insights and network with colleagues from a range of industries. Very professionally organised.

ASTRAZENECA

Diversity Director Research & Development

The presentations were of very high quality and the atmosphere was one of inclusion rather than competition. The openness with which information was exchanged was unusual and this was critical to the effectiveness of the conference. The audience had as much to contribute as the presenters and it was a refreshing change that they were not only 'talked at' but 'listened to'.

SABIC PETROCHEMICALS

Global Innovation Manager, Sabic Polymers

Good platform to discuss many challenging aspects of how to make innovation work.
