Innova is a one-day symposium offering presentations by thought leaders from the corporate world, small business and entrepreneurs, innovation organizations, universities, and government on how innovation fuels Georgia’s growing economy. The day will focus on three core areas for Innovation in Business: Leadership, Talent and Technology. How can business leaders be responsive to changing times? Build an attractive workplace and a sustainable workforce? Leverage technology solutions for efficiency and a competitive edge? Expect to learn from over thought leaders in the innovation economy and business industry leaders. Our mission is to come together and offer relevant and applicable solutions for businesses to leverage innovation today!

We believe that Igniting innovation is a mindset that needs to be cultivated. Small businesses and leaders must innovate to keep up with the market’s pace of change. Today, we find ourselves in unprecedented times with not only technological advances disrupting industries, but the human behavior experience accelerated by the pandemic that has shifted how we engage, interact, participant in the work and business economy. Companies and leaders must ignite the spirit of innovation in order to stay relevant and not fall behind. In fact, innovative leaders and companies are rewarded not only for being prepared for the future, but also with leadership, talent, and an increase in consumer demand.

Innova will help companies and leaders learn and implement new processes, ideas, services and products with the goal of boosting the bottom line. From launching new and improved products or services which can lead to higher revenues to making existing process more efficient or solving current business problem. We invite you to leverage INNOVA as a one day to step away from everyday business, and create the much-needed white space to brainstorm, design think, and establish and opportunity to drive new business innovations that can drive revenue for your company and organization and propel your growth.

You will leave fired up to spark the spirit of innovation for yourself, your team, and garner key takeaways to elevate your leadership, talent, and tech innovation to stay focused on the future of your business.
