InnoVault Academy Session 1: INNOVATION with Alex Skinner
InnoVault Academy is a series of interactive seminars for budding entrepreneurs and current business owners who want expand, develop, market and sell their ideas to the world.
We begin the series with INNOVATION, lead by InnoVault's own entrepreneur and Founder, Alex Skinner.
Innovation is not just for tech unicorns. It begins with a simple question: how do you satisfy consumer needs and desires, using your available resources, profitably? This introduction to innovation will provide you with the tools to understand your available business resources, define a successful product/service and apply innovation techniques within your own business.
While 4 in 10 businesses in the U.S. have their operations threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, there are also opportunities for businesses to transform and innovate - addressing online markets, implementing flexible operating models, transforming products and product offerings.
