As a large company, your biggest (and often underutilized) resource is your employees. Every day, they are tackling both corporate and community problems with an innovative and solution-oriented mindset. These efforts can lead to new company practices, product ideas, or even startup company spin-outs, all of which can add diverse revenue streams to your overall portfolio. However, many companies lack the ability and knowledge to nurture the development of these innovations. In this unique co-presentation, you will have the opportunity to learn how two corporate powerhouses – GoDaddy and Adobe – have applied the concept of intrapreneurship, from the two leaders spearheading their respective initiatives. Join Shawn Pfunder of GoDaddy, Hart Shafer of Adobe, and CEI’s own entrepreneur-in-residence Nate Curran for this engaging and informative topic.
Who Should Attend
C-Suite level executive teams, department directors, and other management professionals with decision-making capabilities, all within large or growing companies (50+ employees).
