Nowadays, most corporations take innovation seriously.
Everybody talks about innovation – we do innovation.

This year’s Corporate Innovation Conference aims to start “The search for new business models”, because we want to encourage you to focus not just on product or service innovation, but even more on new types of business models that will ensure your company’s continuing business success.

Corporate Innovation Conference is ICT Hub’s annual flagship event that gathers corporate innovators and entrepreneurs and gives them an opportunity to share their experiences, learn from the leading experts and connect with their peers.

Corporate Innovation Conference brings together all the important stakeholders in the local innovation ecosystem, enabling entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs alike to present the best practices, transformation methods, business tools and case studies during this one-day gathering whose main goal is to help you find new ways to innovate. By attending the conference, you are becoming a part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Serbia.

Corporate Innovation Conference adheres to the ICT Hub’s mission of empowering innovation in both corporations and startups, by showcasing the latest standards and achievements in innovation management, with the sole purpose of inspiring and connecting those who take part in the business game by helping them build sustainable and profitable companies.
