Exclusive Innopipe Community Meetup

Proving your department’s worth

After a long time of planning, we are excited to finally host the very first face-to-face meet-up for the Finnish corporate Innopipe community.

We have hosted many events in the past years. Through these years we’ve received many requests to host a series of meet-ups for our community as a place to comfortably open up about your challenges, to ask questions, discuss with peers, receive advice from experts, connect with others, and to grow together in the field of corporate innovation.

What is it about?

The topic for this event is “Proving your department’s worth”.

Together with other industry experts, you will discuss the best practices on how to effectively communicate the value of your team to upper management and stakeholders.

This event is a must-attend for Innopipe users looking to advance their career and ensure the success of their department.
