Microsoft Innovation Challenger Unconference

Date(s) - Thursday, 27 September, 2018
9:00 am PDT - 2:30 pm PDT

Bookings are closed for this event.

In a 4.5-hour packed session (including lunch), we will facilitate small groups of senior innovation leaders to collaboratively solve corporate innovation & venture problems that you are facing today in your enterprise.

After the kick-off, each participant will briefly describe up to three problems from their innovation & venture efforts. Once all problems have been listed, you and your peers will be asked to vote, set the agenda, form the groups and go deep on the topics ultimately chosen. Each group will have an expert facilitator, note taker, and other support. Groups will be composed of investors, corporate venture, innovators and startups to present a variety of viewpoints and approaches.

A panel discussion will occur during lunch and group presentations will conclude the day with opportunity for lively audience participation.

Other things you can expect:

  • The day will start with an optional hour of networking and continental breakfast
  • You will be challenged to bring your best ideas
  • A Networking Notebook and Idea Sketchbook will be provided including enumeration of who your peers are in the event
  • After the event there will be a hosted happy hour for those who want to stay and continue the dialogue

This is a curated invite-only group of leaders. We may have missed someone who would be valuable to attend this exclusive event, please let us know or have them contact us for inclusion.
