Innovation Meet-ups

BEDC is excited to be be hosting monthly Innovation Meet-ups beginning in November, 2019 to facilitate innovative thinking in the Brookings business community!

To succeed in today's rapidly changing marketplace it is increasingly important to encourage creativity, challenge the status quo and ignite innovation within your team.

Through a collaboration with Idea Champions, BEDC is offering an unique and powerful opportunity to leverage your existing assets and produce impactful outcomes for your business.

This innovation-sparking curriculum will provide tools, resources, and networks to go beyond business as usual and establish dynamic, sustainable cultures by making innovation a mindset — not a program!

To minimize the impact to your full schedule, Innovation Meet-ups will be held over the noon hour with lunch provided. Yep, that's right, it's FREE! The expenses for this program are being covered through a USDA grant. For more information regarding the grant, click here.


Innovation Meetups will be scheduled for the third Thursday of each month, over the noon hour with lunch provided!

The format will include a thought starter emailed to you (blog post and or short video) for review prior to the meetup. We will then use that material as the starting point for conversation.
