SPRING:  Sourcing PRedictive Insights for New Growth

Created by IRI in collaboration with RTI International Innovation Advisors to explore trends impacting innovation management.  Spring participants will get access to early market signals, connect with new startup companies, learn through immersive experiences, and gain insights from thought leaders.  The 2018 Spring experience will help you prepare your organization to capitalize on future trends and recognize future threats related to intelligent systems. Spring will help you:

Learn. Get the deep understanding you need through immersion: curated content and experiences that will bring future(s) to life.

Focus. Hear how pioneers are responding to this trend. Get tools to identify the threats and opportunities that may emerge for you.

Act. Learn how to take these insights back to your organization. Shape your innovation and business strategy to prepare for long-term success.

The Spring program will culminate in the Springboard conference at RTI International in Research Triangle Park, NC, on October 23rd and 24th, 2018. Participants will share key insights from our research journey, hear from cutting edge thought leaders, discuss the implications of trends with peers, and investigate how these emerging trends are likely to impact your business.
