TechNexus Rocks to Rockets October Newsletter

Blog — October 5, 2017

Digital transformation is not going away. With few exceptions, every industry is grappling with how digital technology, the internet of things, connectivity, and the next new disruptive technology are changing how things are done. Traditional industries continue to seek new ways of embracing new tech to drive innovation. Venture enabled innovation (VEI) - which includes strategy, venturing, acceleration and incubation - has risen to the top because it aligns enterprise strategy with venture activity. It bridges the gap between enterprises thirsty to innovate and ventures hungry to drive change. 

In line with our mission to help industry leaders leverage VEI to rethink growth, we’ll be sharing monthly updates about our collaborations as well as other notable industry examples. We’d love to hear how your team is engaging in venture enabled innovation and potentially include your news in our newsletter.
