Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) October 5, 2009
Spigit, the leader in social productivity software for the enterprise, announced today that it will showcase its flagship InnovationSpigit 2.0 platform for enterprise innovation management Tuesday, Oct. 6 through Wednesday, Oct. 7 during the 6th annual World Business Forum at New York's Radio City Music Hall.
Considered the best global forum in the United States, the World Business Forum brings together top business, political and academic experts to address the most pressing issues of the day. This year's impressive lineup of speakers includes influential leaders and global experts on the hot-button issues of the economy, energy and international trade and relations. The lineup includes President Bill Clinton, world economist Paul Krugman, energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens, management and innovation expert Gary Hamel, and award-winning filmmaker George Lucas.
"Businesses and the world at large are experiencing unprecedented challenges. The accelerating pace of change across industries, and critical global issues such as the financial crisis, energy and healthcare, require collaborative and creative solutions," said Paul Pluschkell, CEO and founder of Spigit. "That's why we're proud to sponsor the World Business Forum. But these challenges obviously cannot be solved in two days. Tools like InnovationSpigit enable the conversation, collaboration and problem-solving to continue well after the lights go down on this event."
Based on the popular social software model, InnovationSpigit is the first innovation management platform designed to nurture innovation with community approach within a complete social networking-style package.
