Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 11, 2014
Since Henry Chesbrough coined the phrase, open innovation has been one of the key initiatives that businesses have been pursuing, allowing them to further enhance their innovation processes. Open innovation brings external and internal ideas together in collaboration. As much as it’s a collaboration of organizations, it’s also one of technology and those who enter into open innovation share the risk as well as the reward. Essentially, it enables companies to reach their objectives more efficiently.
Due to knowledge now being widely distributed, companies no longer rely entirely on their own research and now they access inventions or intellectual properties through others, but how do businesses come into collaboration with these companies?
The Open Innovation Summit in Chicago brings together leading professionals from Fortune 500 companies to share their success stories in research and product development. Amongst the 25+ presentations are innovators from Sears, Luxottica, GlaxoSmithKline & many more.

Focusing on Mattel’s open innovation program and processes that they used to spark, find and nurture their legacy. Olga will be joined by Clorox, Sanofi & many more who will be sharing their open innovation journeys.
