Our friends from the Lean Startup Meetup Group are organising this great event to which we would like to invite you, too!

Corporations face a faster changing business environment these days. Their core business is continuously exposed to market threat from startups and established companies. To fight back, they have acquired new skills to create innovative products and business models, such as Lean Startup, Design Thinking and Agile methodologies. At the same time, existing business still needs to thrive, running a radically different set of management styles and KPIs.

Various models have emerged to change how both activities (managing today’s business and discovering tomorrow's business) can be organized. Our panel guests are successfully innovating using different innovation approaches and will share their insights and discuss benefits and trade-offs. You will also meet other Lean innovators and find a valuable network to help you reflect on your own experiences!

Thomas Hartmann, str84wd Products, for the Corporate Entrepreneurship Program approach
