Always Be Innovating: Thinking Like a Startup

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Every startup raves about innovation, but how does it work within a large company? As technology changes and consumer demand shifts, it’s vital for companies big and small to question and re-evaluate their strategies. Adopting the startup mentality is key and pretending to be a “lean startup” isn’t always enough. While some have created internal research and development teams, others have acquired companies or been acquired themselves, while continuing to work independently. Whether you’re a big brand or a startup that has momentum but is not yet mainstream, how do you keep the wheels of innovation turning without cannibalizing your money-making product? EasilyDo, Zite and Tagged executives will provide an in-depth look at how to inject originality and novelty into your company, regardless of its size. You’ll hear about the pros and cons of acquiring innovation versus creating a labs team and stories of hackathon style overnight experiments that turned into huge wins.
