TopCoder Innovation Summit 2013 – Innovation Rebels with a Cause
Innovation takes risk. Yes, of course utilizing new technologies and tactics – like Open Innovation and Crowdsourcing – can reduce risk and allow you to take more proverbial swings, but it never removes the fact that at some point you will be staring outwardly from the edge of your nest, and in that moment you will either decide to leap or retreat back to the perception of comfort. Nothing gained, nothing ventured. There is a reason that saying is still famous.
At the 2013 TopCoder Innovation Summit we will be focusing on stories of venturing into the unknown. The focus won’t be technology per se, but rather the humans behind these tales, what they have endured, how they inched closer to the edge, and then leapt. They have lessons, they have tales like none other and in some cases; they are literally changing the world.
At some point, you will find yourself on the edge of innovation with a decision to make. Come join us at the 2013 TopCoder Innovation Summit, and get prepared to take your leap.
