Calling all Silicon Valley Corporate Innovation Center professionals... There are a number of large companies with outpost innovation centers located in Silicon Valley working in isolation. The goal of this group is to create a community of professionals and entrepreneurs at heart from various innovation centers to network, explore, collaborate and share best practices that are unique to being a start-up within a larger company. Collectively we can define and develop our role in the greater innovation ecosystem.

* Why should members join: Network with peers who hold this very unique corporate role; share best practices and challenges of bringing innovation to a larger company; build skills needed to run a start-up within a larger organization; opportunity to meet new partners in Silicon Valley.
* What can members expect out of the group: Will be a great opportunity to connect with those intrepreneurs from various companies. Looking for suggestions on types of programs members would like to see.
