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

In a fast-paced world where new technologies come to light every day, companies have to fight for the position of a technology leader. That is why external innovation and strategic partnership play a key role in company growth. Companies need specific scouting strategies and intelligent technology investment plans.  Well managed external partnering will lead to an increase of quality technology, expansion of the product portfolio and discovery of new business models and markets. Whether this is done through an open innovation platform, separate corporate venturing subsidiary or establishing joint ventures, it is driving global business forward.

This summit brings together leading innovation, R&D and corporate venturing executives from top companies and a cross section of industries. We offer an excellent mix of strategic insight, product case studies and interactive panels to help your company grow technology and establish meaningful and successful partnerships.

This year we cover key topics including:

• Managing the global R&D portfolio in an era of techscouting, corporate venturing and partnerships
• Strategic and practical examples of open innovation: From externally gained technology to commercialisation
• Exploring the corporate venture decision making process and looking to the strategic challenge of disruption
• Analysing the opportunities, risks and values of partnerships with SME’s, universities and joint ventures
• Discovering the right sources for game changing innovation

With so much at stake, this is an event you do not want to miss!

See you in Berlin.

Testimonials

SABIC PETROCHEMICALS

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

ASTRAZENECA

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'.

DIAGEO

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