Disruption – Business Opportunity or Challenge from Martin Stenfeldt, Wasabi Link
Bringing Great Ideas To Life – Together from Frank Hatzack, Novozymes

Martin Stenfeldt discusses the most important MEGATRENDS happening now.
Frank Hatzack discusses Novozymes’ ONLINE IDEATIONS – massive conversations about innovation. (Part 1)
Frank Hatzack shares his extensive experience on how to make online collaboration successful. (Part 2)

Traditional industries are extremely challenged when it comes to digitalizing their business models in order to capture growth opportunities. New competitors are changing the way we look at business and the disruptive spirit of Silicon Valley’s startups is now influencing all industries.

This meeting gave a shot of inspirational new ways to think about your business model. Ideas were discussed to help you make your own business ‘future proof’ with practical insights into Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas. And many practical cases from various industries were used as illustrations

Novozymes Head of Innovation Development, Frank Hatzack, shared his practical experience, as well. He and his team fostered a collaborative culture in Novozymes which lead to disruptive new business ideas. The key to success lies in creating an agenda which is intellectually compelling and emotionally engaging. Also, turning ideas into prototypes and products requires sufficient absorptive capacity in the organization. Going forward Novozymes wants to engage the outside world even more in its value creation through external crowdsourcing and open source innovation.
