Innovation Industry Group

Silicon Valley is the world’s innovation capital.   It has a unique combination of world class universities, startup entrepreneurs, angel and venture capital, as well as service providers, all specializing in helping startups speed up their execution.    Global corporates have taken notice of this ecosystem and located outposts in Silicon Valley, studying the innovation process, scouting new technologies, considering corporate investment and M&A, and even performing full-fledged R&D.

No matter where a startup or corporate is located around the world, chances are high that they will leave markers in Silicon Valley as they access investor capital, work with development partners, or consult for business expertise.   This area therefore provides a unique opportunity to study emerging trends as well as compare notes on global innovation processes in both startups and corporates.

GABA’s Innovation Industry Group (IG) organizes events to examine emerging industry trends and to compare notes on the challenges of developing new ideas in organizations worldwide.
