This session will take a look at business formulas and focus on key elements for success. Participants will discover new ways to leverage Mega Trends and develop ground breaking business methods that drive momentum for their company. In addition, the session will explore examples of promising models in the B2B and B2C arena, while asserting that many of the evolving business practices have emerged from the more innovative consumer economy.

GIL participants attending the Innovative Business Models of the Future session can expect to:

  • Identify new partner networks, future customer segments and valuable revenue streams for their company
  • Analyze new product positioning in addition to new value proposition through the creation of a business model canvas
  • Assess future success potential of current and emerging business formulas across industries

"As a community we need to focus far more attention on how to innovate how we create ecosystems for our solutions to exist," noted Frost & Sullivan Senior Vice President of Visionary Innovation, Richard Sear. "Over the next 10 years if you invest $1 in products, your cumulative rate of return will be 25 cents on those innovations. Take that 25 cents and invest in business models and the subsequent return over the same 10 year period will be $1.50."

Innovative Business Models of the Future will expose selected case studies from around the globe to convey success stories while identifying new channel partners, customers and revenue streams across the entire business ecosystem.

The Visionary Insight will be followed by an interactive exercise lead by Sear, providing participants the ability to design new business models for their company or industry.

Additional discussions at the event include mind-altering keynote sessions that dive into creating a "Star Trek future" and another on transformational leadership. Furthermore, Frost & Sullivan Partner and Vice President of Energy & Environment, Robert Gamble will examine improvements to everyday life and business opportunities associated with the Connected Home of the future.
