About this event

About this event:

We have chosen to divide the 2013 TEDxStavanger event into three themes:
1. Making innovation happen (best in class)
This first theme is about the beginning stages of an idea. While everybody has had a great idea at one time or another, these innovators took their ideas all the way and succeeded in conquering the strategic new unknowns and maximized a business opportunity.

2. Collaboration breeds innovation (cooperation)
Our second theme is about fostering cooperation across disciplines and leveraging the concept of innovation in an unconventional way. Here, a focus has been placed on using open innovation and extensive collaboration as tools in developing and commercializing new ideas.

3. Repetitive innovation (culture of innovation)
This theme centres around developing a methodology for maintaining a culture of innovation, through a deep zeal for managing continual change. Here, attention has been directed to building a culture of persistent innovation and using that culture as a strategic advantage in the marketplace.
