Innovation Solutions & Services Showcase: Sept. 17, 2021

Facing a range of new challenges and pressures in 2021, innovators in large organizations may need new kinds of support from advisors, trainers, and professional services firms to accelerate their progress.

To help you explore the options that exist in a no-pressure environment, InnoLead is organizing an Innovation Showcase demo event from 10:00 am to 11:30 am ET on September 17, 2021. Our focus will be on new offerings, capabilities, and features launched in 2021. Presenters will detail:

  1. The types of problems they solve
  2. Who they’ve worked with or who uses their technology today
  3. What they’ve recently launched or added to their offerings.

This event is geared only to professionals working in large organizations; we apologize, but we are not admitting software vendors or consultants other than our strategic partner firms, who will be presenting.

A more in-depth overview of the September 2021 event is available here. Replays are also available from our two March 2021 showcases: Software Showcase | Solutions Showcase. For information about presenting in future IL Showcase Series events, please contact
