The Vancouver Corporate Innovation Group (VCIG) is comprised of corporate professionals who are innovating from inside organizations. We are intrapreneurs tasked with creating new products, services and experiences while challenging the established status quo, overcoming corporate constraints and fighting red tape.
We embrace the adoption of emerging technologies and welcome exploration and experimentation in pursuit of new and more efficient ways to generate value to our organizations and stakeholders.
In our sessions, expect to hear from fellow innovators and corporate entrepreneurs on how to effectively break through with a breakthrough; we will share best practices, tips and tricks that will help accelerate innovation, secure buy-in and deliver value to our organizations.
