What’s happening?

Corporate Innovation Summit is an invite-only event ahead of Web Summit Rio, gathering the people guiding some of the world’s biggest companies into the future. Answers to questions that keep CEOs and business founders up at night will emerge from intimate roundtable discussions, interactive masterclasses, and networking sessions.
Two people in conversation stand in a crowded room. One of the people has their back to the camera, and has their arms crossed in front of their body. The other has their right hand in their pocket, and their mobile device in their left hand. The second person appears to be talking.

A crowded auditorium, viewed from the back. Four people are seated in armchairs on a stage which appears small purely because of its distance from the camera. A large screen which reads 'Corporate Innovation Summit' hangs above the stage.

You’ve taken stock of how you currently do things, but something tells you there could be a better, more efficient and more effective way. Innovation is about identifying a new way of thinking, implementing new systems, and reinvigorating a business to create value. We’ll discuss the successes, the stumbling blocks, and the tools required to innovate.

Future trends

What should be at the top of the innovation agenda? What are the trends you need to pay attention to and those you should ignore? We keep an eye on the horizon, discussing the various ways to apply AI, how virtual reality can bring a whole new dimension to the working day, and how mobile can help you go stratospheric.
