Buying innovation is an option

​The results of Plante Moran’s 2013 Innovation Survey indicate that seven out of 10 organizations are convinced that they would be more successful with innovation if they collaborated.

The majority of survey participants had a history of collaborating with suppliers and customers, but some were branching out and looking at small entrepreneurial companies and universities to collaborate with on innovation.

Plante Moran and some of its partners in the survey have designed a webinar to help you explore the possibilities to further your innovation efforts.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will know:

  • About research available from universities
  • How new business incubators work
  • What an ecosystem for innovation is and how it works
