DETAILS:
Startups are often known for being scrappy and innovative, especially when compared to larger, more established companies. The yin to the startup yang, these large companies have systems in place that can limit risk and suppress inventive thinking. To overcome this inherent challenge, the best companies will build creativity and innovation into everyday activities.

During Maine Startup and Create Week 2016, Jeremy Burton, chief technology officer at Wonolo, will join a panel discussion on preserving corporate innovation, even during periods of immense growth. Also featured will be Ted Reed, vice president, Business Development at Unum; Cheryl Eveleigh, senior manager of Innovation for Tom's of Maine; and Phillip Leslie, CEO of RIVS Digital Interviews. Throughout their conversation, the panel will speak to building innovative thinking into the corporate culture. In addition, this session will explore establishing specific positions responsible for seeking out startup partners and ways to enter into mutually beneficial relationships. Attendees will learn actionable strategies for sustaining innovation through both internal and external growth.
