Innovation Leader and KPMG have collaborated to create the go-to resource on corporate innovation, based on detailed survey data and interviews with senior executives at Whirlpool, Boeing, J&J, General Motors, and more. Inside, you’ll discover how more than 270 global companies think about innovation funding, staffing, incentives, and metrics.

How do you evolve an established corporate culture to be more experimental and tolerant of risk-taking? How can your company engage constructively with startups, academia, and suppliers? Join us in New York on April 19th & 20th as we explore these two themes — culture change and external ecosystems — with visits to General Motors‘ Cadillac House, Dow Jones‘ Innovation Lab, Johnson & Johnson‘s JLabs, and NASDAQ. Plus, sessions led by innovation executives at ESPN, Pfizer, New York Life, Ralph Lauren, Gensler, and more.
