InnoQuest | Innovation as Sport | Kickoff, Huddles, Pitches and Score-Keeping

January 20, 2023 | 8:50 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

Join your innovation colleagues as we kick off EDGE’s 2023 InnoQuest season with a voyage of dialogue, inspiration, and goal setting.  As a champion of innovation in your company, you have many balls in the air – from management processes to emerging technologies and markets.  What is new in your playbook this year?  How are you making sure you’re skating to where the puck will be?  How are you keeping score, to make sure you are winning the innovation game?

We’ll feature several fast pitches from both Pittsburgh’s and Cleveland’s start-up community. These are five-minute presentations from entrepreneurs in robotics, AI, consumer products and the autonomous vehicle industries.  In addition, we’ll take a quick sprint through another handful of promising new ventures.  This segment is designed to provide inspiration as well as some support to our emerging start-ups – vital to building a regional culture that supports innovation.

This session will be heavy on small group discussions. Recognizing the value in interpersonal relationships and the volume of expertise among our InnoQuest crew, this will be the time to work through your most pressing innovation management issues with your peers.

Through the InnoQuest Program, participants gain:

  • Best practices in managing and guiding the innovation process
  • New working relations with peer companies and leading practitioners
