Our Objectives

Technology change is creating unprecedented opportunities for established companies to grow. However, industry disruption, rising customer expectations and fragmenting markets all present challenges to success.

The Corporate Innovation Working Group unites Tech London Advocates from industry, start-ups, academia, government and non-governmental organisations.

Our mission is to help established companies build new business models and develop new markets. We do this by uniting the wide range of knowledge and expertise in the Tech London Advocates network, to explore how internal change and collaboration with partners beyond the boundaries of the organisation can enhance business success.

We aim to make connections, create dialogue and generate ideas that will benefit business and promote the UK as a leader in Corporate Innovation.

We welcome Advocates who want to create solutions to the challenges corporate innovators face and make a positive contribution to the debate via our events, workshops and other activities.
