Discussion Topic

Lean Innovation – building in-house “incubator” programs

A growing number of corporations are building “disruptive” innovation units to concentrate entrepreneurial initiatives in a dedicated, quasi-independent group. Variously called Innovation Centers, Corporate Incubators, Tech Garages, Digital Labs, etc., these programs share a focus on Horizon 2 (adjacent) and Horizon 3 (transformative) innovation bets. The best-developed programs serve as internal microcosms of the startup ecosystem. But since these “incubator” programs operate within a corporate entity, their inherent motivations and available levers differ somewhat from external entrepreneurs, investors, and accelerator programs. This roundtable discussion will explore the emerging strategies, staffing/resourcing models, and processes and methods that have proven most successful thus far.
