Welcome and Introductions
9:10 – 9:50 am

Dialogue: When You Should – and When You Should Not – Launch a Lab

Take a deep dive with innovation leaders who have done the benchmarking and analysis to decide whether an innovation lab structure fits their goals – including those who decided against it and well as those who decided to move forward with a lab. Bring your questions and experiences as we exchange insights on the key factors that should determine when and where an innovation lab is the right fit for your organization’s goals.

Moderator:

Rita Shor, Program Director, The Conference Board

New Partnerships and Collaborations

Learn how businesses are creating new forms of partnerships and collaborations with universities and clients, as well as with businesses in unrelated sectors, to develop remarkable innovations that may not have come about any other way.

Navigating Lab and Business Unit Relationships: Remaining Independent, Supported, and Essential

The structural and geographic separation that is designed to spark transformative innovation in a lab are the same elements that can make meaningful connections with and support from business units more challenging. Learn from innovation leaders who have faced these challenges how to remain independent, supported and an essential part of others units’ success.

Mark Rieder, Head of Innovation, NFP

11:25 am – 12:05 pm

Incubating Startups: What Works and What Doesn’t

The potential upside of the combination of startup agility and large firm resources has inspired the launch of many corporate incubators. But as we know, achieving that best-of-both-worlds scenario requires a delicate balance: informing without overwhelming startup thinking; embracing wide-ranging possibilities while still ultimately adding value. Hear from corporate incubator leaders who have faced these challenges on what works to create an incubator that is a win-win for startups and for the larger business.
