Innovation through convergence: A workshop on disruptive partnerships

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

"Innovation through convergence" is a mini "hackathon" (A 2-hour brainstorming and networking workshop) on disruptive partnerships led by experts from MPR Product Development and Halloran Consultants.

The medical industry is evolving, and has the potential in the next 10 years to look nothing like it does at present. With regulations pushing toward improving patient outcomes and reducing overall cost, there are more opportunities than ever to be on the forefront of groundbreaking technology convergences. The key is to be consistently innovating internally and not wait for your core technology to become obsolete.

Creativity and convergence however, is merely the first step. There is a process a product must take to get from idea to commercial launch, which will minimize risk and increase the chances of success. This workshop is designed to develop potential new partnerships through creative brainstorming.

Here's how it works:

After a brief presentation on the status of the industry and convergences happening around us, the attendees will split into small groups for the main event.

Drawing upon its member's expertise and experience, each table will be challenged to develop new products and service models. The goal is not only to develop a new product, but also to draw on products currently on the market and take them to the next level.

In a 2-minute presentation, each team will pitch its new product for the chance of receiving not only a swag bag full of prizes, but bragging rights for the rest of the event.
