    ABOUT

    New, innovative ideas arise every single day. But how are companies like Blendle able to scale this idea into an international successful product?

    It's about three things:

    1. Their products are evergreen: timeless products solving a timeless need.
    2. They created a new product category: e.gl: pay-per-article (Blendle).
    3. They balance a culture of innovation with a culture of implementation.

    In this breakfast session, two innovation experts will teach you how bigger companies can master these three keys to successful scaling their product innovations.
