Innov8ers Conference


The Innov8rs Conference has hosted conferences for innovators in various industries since 2011. They’ve hosted in over 25 cities globally, from San Francisco to Sydney and Singapore. They have multiple programs that promote an atmosphere of creativity and discussion surrounding the future of innovation. I went to the Innov8rs Conference held recently in Austin, Texas, and I found it to be one of the largest and most engaging conferences in a long time. 

In this episode, I share my thoughts on the recently concluded Innov8rs Conference and why I found a lot of value during my time. I explain how it promoted discussions and engagement despite being a large gathering. I describe some of the topics I was fortunate to sit in, especially regarding the future of innovation and ESG. I also share some of the interesting points regarding internal innovators and innovators hired in. 

"This was a good chance to talk with other people, peers with other companies, and share success and challenges." - Paul Heller
