Singularity University, the X PRIZE Foundation and Deloitte Consulting recently launched a new four-day executive education program: The Innovation Partnership Program (IPP).
The immersive 3 year partnership program prepares senior executives, from global corporations and Fortune 500 companies like Google, Shell, Qualcomm, and Hershey, to take their companies from “linear” to “exponential” by creating a culture of explosive innovation.
The first meeting took place last week consisting of a wide array of workshops on crowd-sourcing the rapid advancement of exponential technologies and how to innovate through incentivized competitions. The program includes a biannual summit, with the next one scheduled for September 18-‐22, 2013 in Silicon Valley.
