It is not too late to register for JEDC’s Innovation Summit this Wednesday and Thursday, February 15 and 16, at http://jedc.org/innovation.

Organizations today are challenged by slowing growth, a lack of differentiation in their products and services, and the threat of being blindsided by marketplace disruption. These trends collectively require businesses to develop the “mindset, toolset and skillset” of the innovator to create new market space, seize the initiative, and create a culture that makes innovation everybody’s business. Our featured speaker is Robert Tucker, whose expertise is teaching the skills needed for creativity and innovation in today’s competitive business environment.

Here are some more reasons to attend:

  1. The Pitch Contest opens the stage to 5 Alaskan entrepreneurs. They will pitch their business in front of the ultimate panel — Innovation Summit attendees.
  2. Innovation Shorts are an opportunity for you to hear companies and people share their innovation successes. Hear from Enterprise Carshare, the national Velociter program, Invest Alaska and more.
  3. Take a deep look into Alaskan Brewery’s success.
  4. Take a historical technology tour of Juneau or visit local research and development facilities.
