#CassInnovate 4th May 2017

Innovation is key to companies competing in today's economic climate. Cass Innovate was been designed for individuals who wish to develop the skills to turn ideas into action and enable an innovative creative climate in their company. At Cass Innovate people had the chance to hear from, learn from and interact with entrepreneurs and innovators at every stage of their journeys – from fledgling start-ups to fully fledged global giants. The conference showcased the work of staff, students and alumni from the Masters in Innovation Creativity and Leadership and MSc in Entrepreneurship, as well as friends and colleagues from a broad range of innovative organisations.

This year the Centre joined forces with other centres and groups at the Cass Business School to offer an event that focused not only on creativity and innovation but also business and entrepreneurship, with strong digital and design themes. This 2017 conference was a natural progression of the Centre’s earlier ICL conferences. By bringing together academics, trainers and practitioners Cass Innovate explored crosscutting themes in creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership, as well as design and digital.
