Below is their press release:

RISE is collaborating with leading global corporate innovators and practitioners to share practical perspectives on corporate innovation at the Corporate Innovation Summit 2019.

The conference is going to be Asia’s first experiential conference and will be held on March 28-29, 2019 at Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre, CentralWorld, Bangkok. 

“At present time, big companies have great advantages over manpower, capital, and expertise in running businesses, and the crucial missing element is not merely ‘innovation,’ but rather, ‘innovators’ who build and stimulate innovation within the organization. That’s something RISE is striving to instill in those leading corporates and the government,” says Dr. Supachai Parchariyanon, Founder and CEO of RISE.

One of RISE’s goals for 2019 is to create a sustainable corporation innovation ecosystem in Thailand and Southeast Asia, making this region the hub for corporate innovation in the world.

The Corporate Innovation Summit 2019 exists to encourage business enterprises to learn and better understand the significance of innovation as the key driver in economic development.

With great emphasis on the use of practical tools and methodology, the summit aims to nurture Southeast Asia’s innovation ecosystem in the business environment and to transform mindsets onto actionable outcome through experiential workshops that cover every aspect of corporate innovation: Skillset and Mindset Transformation, Corporate Venture Capital, Corporate Entrepreneurship, M&A and Beyond, Government and Policy, Deep Technology, and Innovation and Creativity and Corporate Accelerator.

Aside from the interactive workshops, another aspect of this experiential summit will also include keynote talks, panel discussions, and mentoring clinics with innovation experts and business problem-solvers.

More than 2,000 innovative professionals, executives, business leaders, tech leaders, and fast-growing organization representatives with diverse backgrounds will be flying in from all over the globe to be part of this disruptive movement.

By the end of the summit, everyone is going to be corporate innovators. Expect to bring back new and actionable mindset, and the right skillset and toolset to implement within your organizations and company culture.
