Open Innovation is driving a wave of new product development and business innovation that comes with a brand new set of rules. It has the potential to turn a product innovation team of fifty into one of five thousand and cut new product development cycles down from 18 months to 18 weeks.

Entrepreneurial companies with big eyes and small pockets are capitalizing on a new world of business collaboration. While others, clinging desperately to fading product lines and shrinking bottom lines are now breathing new life into old brands and leveraging Open Innovation platforms to enter into new and sustainable product categories.

And then there are the behemoths. Having had the foresight to begin the external search for innovation early, and the budgets to take more than their fair share of calculated risk, companies like P&G, Pfizer, Apple, Kraft and IBM are achieving great success across the board. While these forward reaching giants are still in the early phases of unlocking the true potential of Open Innovation, they are paving the way for many as they begin to more fully exploit this new, seemingly borderless world by developing hard and fast business strategies in line with changing business ideologies.

The 2nd Annual Open Innovation Summit features the industry's leaders, chief innovators, bloggers, inventors and other experts. Our program features case studies and best practices that reengineer how you must approach the front-end innovation practices to compete most effectively in a world of exponential growth and change.

Attendees will hear from some of today's most innovative companies and learn the secrets of how they are looking to both the front and back end of innovation to skyrocket themselves to new levels of success. They will explore external sourcing options and develop strategic partner management plans. They will identify new approaches to achieving internal buy-in and begin developing value-added (and risk-adverse) IP strategies.

Attendees will network with experts who will help them to identify new and exciting channels to help them fatten their own product pipelines. They will leave with not only a solid understanding of the limitless opportunities available but tactical plans for integrating new concepts and strategies into their existing business structures. And ultimately, they will begin forming those strategic partnerships that will deliver commercial success.
