Innovation Camp 2020

Next Innovation Camp: October 12–30, 2020

Disruptions from technology and nature are converging. New technologies, new business models, and new realities driven by exponential growth create opportunity for those that are ready to embrace the fourth wave of innovation and a regenerative economy. The swissnex Innovation Camp accelerates your innovation pipeline, aligning product and purpose with company strategy and creating an international learning community to de-risk and validate early stage product/service development. Participating in the innovation camp provides you with a unique opportunity to prototype your future with a cross-corporate cohort of intrapreneurs.

The swissnex Innovation Camp is offered as a 3-week hybrid program held between October 12-30, 2020 with a mix of online workshops and in-person sessions connecting the best of the Bay Area and Switzerland. Participating companies can also opt to join a separate learning journey to San Francisco in 2021.

We hosted three information sessions to give potential participating companies the opportunity to learn more about this year’s innovation camp:
August 18, 2020 at 4:30pm CET (7:30am PDT)
September 1, 2020 at 4:30pm CET (7:30am PDT)
September 15, 2020 at 4:30pm CET (7:30am PDT)
