Innovation is all the rage in the corporate world and we're going to dig deep into how it really works!
For our 121st Web Wednesday Social Mixer, we are excited to interview Mathieu Toulemonde about his journey from young French hacker to Asia CEO of Agorize, a world leader in online open innovation challenges.
Their offering is extremely timely as they tap into the huge demand for crowd-sourcing new business ideas, as well as some good CSR /PR, for companies who want to engage the wider community of innovators (students, developers and startups).
The numbers speak for themselves: in the last three months, his team of 35 people has enticed 10,000 participants who have proposed 3,000 innovative projects to 15 corporate clients!
In Asia, their clients include: BNP Paribas, HK Science Park, Electrolux, Linkedin HK, Microsoft HK and Amazon.
Mathieu practices what he preaches and is very proud of having successfully developed an internal culture of innovation for which he has recently been awarded the "Best Employer Brand 2019".
We will be hosting the event at Levels Club in Central Hong Kong, 2/F, On Hing Building, 1 On Hing Terrace, Central, Hong Kong.
Doors open at 6:30pm for networking and the fireside chat begins at 7:20pm or so. We close up at 9pm. We charge an entrance fee of HK$100, which you can either pay at the door or in advance (preferred method), via PayMe: https://www.webwednesday.hk/2019/11/we-accept-payme.html
See you next week, protest-permitting.
