Innovation Pioneers is a network founded by innovation leaders and practitioners from various industries, with experience in strategic, tactical as well as operational management of innovation. The organisation have implemented structured innovation as well as managed successful launches of business critical innovations.
Richard Englund, the Director of Cleantech Inn Sweden at Teknopol AB, is very pleased with the membership:
- This is exactly the right forum for Cleantech Inn Sweden, as we already work actively with creating business for our own members: growing cleantech companies and established industry, as well as developing methods of sustainable innovation.
- By accessing the network of Innovation Pioneers we aim for increased business opportunities and growth within the sector, and together we have a stronger voice calling for change of the policies that still benefit the not so environmental friendly solutions instead of supporting new sustainable technology.
Innovation Pioneers was initiated in 2008 and the ambition is to build innovation capabilities through joint development and networking between top representatives from the innovation community. By spreading knowledge, tools and insights around innovation, and thereby contribute to greater effectiveness, they strive to enhance performance and further growth in members' firms. Among the founding members you find Alfa Laval, IKEA, Volvo, The Absolut Company, Husqvarna Group and many others. All member companies and individual members work with innovation on both a strategic and an operational level. They are leaders and visionaries, practitioners and strategists with access to the member-driven knowledge sharing and collaboration events, for example Innovation in Action November 18-19.
