Another semester of Open Innovation

Tuesday marks the first installment of the Open Innovation Speaker Series at the Center for Open Innovation at UC Berkeley, effectively the “mother church” of open innovation studies.

The series is every Tuesday from 12:30-2:00 p.m. in 250 Sutardja Dai Hall. Coincidentally, at that exact same time and place is a course called "Topics in Open Innovation” (ENG 298A.4), taught by Henry Chesbrough and Solomon Darwin of the Center for Open Innovation. (Quite a coincidence! What are the odds?)

Below is the all-start lineup of industry speakers (plus a few academics):

The format seems similar to last year’s series, down to the meeting room. Previous years’ seminars have been archived on the COI website, and many have slides and YouTube videos — including this video from my visit to the COI a year ago.
