Part of Social Media Week New York: Register Here 

In the fast-paced world of the tech startup, businesses fly or die based on their ability to be innovative thinkers, and their ability to execute on that thinking. As a large organization, embracing some of the techniques used by these entrepreneurs will help you stay competitive and dominate your market.

This session is designed for executives and managers who are looking for new ways to foster creativity, kickstart cross-pollination of ideas between silo-ed departments and build better digital products faster. We’ll be serving lunch and exploring how you can teach your team to think a bit more like a startup.

  • How to shift internal culture by adopting a startup mentality
  • Tactics for rapid product development: Thinking Lean and Agile
  • Fostering innovation through internal hack days

This workshop is led by Chris Eben. Chris brings to the table more than 15 years of product management experience across web and mobile. He’s worked for startups and with large organisations, including Longview Solutions and Actuate Corporation, and has built software teams in Silicon Valley, London, England and his hometown of Toronto.

A Partner at The Working Group, Chris leads a growing a team that that crafts custom software solutions (web and mobile apps) and invests in and incubates startups. A tireless advocate for all things entrepreneurial, Chris is an investor, startup mentor and Startup Weekend organizer who is regularly sought out by the media to provide thought leadership on startup and enterprise business strategy.
