What I find really striking and innovative ( ;-) ) is the short duration of the lessons, that's a big thing in comparison with the typical class courses where a student has to stay seated for hours; the content is great as well, it's what to expect to manage all stages of corporate innovation."

WHAT IS
THE CORPORATE INNOVATION ACADEMY?

From years of experience as corporate innovation consultants, we have listened to thousands of executives globally, helping them bring their innovation practices from traditional digital transformation efforts into  what Elon Musk called "the machine that makes the machine".

We believe that corporations are one of the best agents for change in the world. And our mission is to become an enabler of that movement, so we can leave it a little bit better than we found.

Because so many companies are struggling to switch from legacy methods into Innovation 3.0, we have decided to share our knowledge in order to maximize the reach and speed of that change.

In this course you will have access to learnings and real business cases that used to be exclusive only to top level executives and high-paid consultants. You will learn from works that we have done with global corporations in all sectors, including Energy, Insurance, Banking, Defense, Transportation, Technology, and more.


And also, because, who doesn't love innovation?

By helping people master the fundamentals of building state-of-the-art corporate innovation methods and processes, we help create an entire new generation of professionals. As PMO and Marketing once surged to become basic capabilities to any students of business, Innovation is the next to follow and create massive competitive advantages to those who master it.

And as a bonus, be able to work directly managing the latest technologies and business models in the world, and harnessing the best of human creativity.
