Corporate innovation leaders from leading Fortune 1000 organizations including JetBlue Technology Ventures, Nike, AT&T and Volkswagen will come together at RocketSpace’s Innovation Summit next month on RocketSpace’s San Francisco tech campus. The event brings together members of the RocketSpace Corporate Membership and immerses them in emerging tech trends, introduces them to disruptive startups for potential partnerships, and brings peers together with hands-on workshops.
From Sept. 13-14, the Summit will connect members face-to-face with the broader RocketSpace ecosystem of corporate clients, industry mentors and startups, and center around four major disruption trends impacting global corporations: the future of consumer experience, communications, IoT and connectivity, and mobility and transportation. Among other interactive activities, next month’s event will feature:
- Thought-provoking ideas from innovators like Dirk Ahlborn, CEO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, who are reinventing how people and things move around the world.
- Actionable insights from venture capitalists like Riva-Melissa Tez, Managing Partner at Permutation Ventures, who are finding and funding the next generation of AI companies.
- Live demos from 12 dynamic startups with disruptive technologies within the four key themes of tech disruption.
- Exposure not only to game-changing startups and other innovative corporations, but also to tactical toolkits to partnering with them.
"The connections have been immense. It is not just the quality of the startups I have met that I could immediately see short-term and long-term impact to our business, but also the collaboration with other corporates from very different industries,” said Yvonne Lau, Li & Fung, member of RocketSpace’s Corporate Membership. “Partnering together we can create some potential alliances that may be important in the future.”
