The Big Picture: Practicality, Pressure, and Possibility
The 2019 Innovation Landscape whitepaper will tie the innovation trends into the market drivers to form a clear picture of the year ahead. The whitepaper is for all those interested in the innovation taking place worldwide. We also discuss the role of the startups, the programs that guide them to success, and the corporations that take them to the next level. Learn how corporations are working with competitors to bring solutions to the market. Understand the blurring lines between “intrapreneurship” and startups that are part of incubation programs.
In today’s fast-paced innovation landscape, there is an unprecedented set of pressures on executives to drive shareholder value through enhanced assets and improved productivity.
Our member business incubation programs give us an inside view of the innovation landscape, which is the foundation our outlook for the coming year found in this white paper. Read about today’s market trends and get a glimpse into our future in a fascinating, practical way.
Of Buzzwords and Best Practices
As Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” While an old quote, it applies to today’s technology as well. The white paper will lead you through the buzzwords in today’s innovation landscape such as SDN, 5G and more, and give you a better understanding on how, and if, these disruptions will be as scalable as the hype.
The 2019 Innovation Landscape looks at best practices and how benchmarking has given program-incubated startups an advantaged as compared to others like them. Today, innovation is not just about launching a new product. It is about finding a reason for the product like solving a need or creating a benefit. The landscape in 2019 is about bringing society’s needs to the entrepreneurs with new, innovative ideas. The new year is also about business incubation programs giving them the foundation they need in order to launch and scale up.
