About the event

Almost every established business today is under attack. Business leaders we talk to are hyper-aware of the threats that disruptive technologies and competitive new market entrants are imposing on their traditional business models.


Innovation is the key to survival, but with less time to monetise innovation projects and so many options available to drive for change, how do you get ahead and reach a successful, sustainable future, faster?


Our exclusive breakfast event will address this challenge in the form of a corporate innovation masterclass. The masterclass will introduce you to principals and techniques associated with the Lean Startup approach, which we believe holds the key to success in corporate innovation.


Hosted by the team at ThoughtWorks Ventures, this masterclass will help you to understand how the Lean Startup methodology could be applied to your business to help you identify, capture and shape new ideas for growth and value.
