Open Innovation: Millions of Us Solving Problems
    Monday March 12, 2012 5:00pm - 6:00pm @ Hilton Austin Downtown (Salon H) (500 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    Co-presentation from Dwayne Spradlin of InnoCentive & Jack Hughes of TopCoder, Inc., leaders in the open innovation market. Led by Jacob Ward of Popular Science magazine, the panel will discuss how open innovation and crowdsourcing can transform your business, either through a breakthrough ‘eureka‘ idea or continuous and incremental improvement of a product or service. Find out what companies from Netflix to NASA to Toyota have gained from putting their biggest challenges out in front of the general public, and how you can do the same. This practical and candid conversation will uncover the key issues you need to address when incorporating open innovation communities into your own business plans, and how professional problem-solving communities will evolve in the coming years.
