The 2013 session of Energy Innovation has already taken place; 2014 dates have not yet been set.

Energy is the challenge as well as the opportunity of our generation. This innovative new four-day program is designed to enable business executives, entrepreneurs and government officials to more effectively encourage, lead and manage the entire venture creation process for energy-be they stand alone new ventures or pioneering undertakings inside of larger organizations. The process includes identifying opportunities, generating new ideas, designing a holistic solution, and building a viable, significant, and sustainable new energy-oriented business.

Join the MySloanExecEd Community Group for this program to network with past, present, and future participants.

  • Identify, evaluate, and support new innovation opportunities and successful energy venture strategies
  • Understand current best practices for new energy venture creation and also which practices are not working
  • Design a energy innovation ecosystem to best support ongoing energy venture creation
  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages and create strategies to maximize synergies and minimize conflicts when such an ecosystem is within a larger organization
  • Leverage new technology and other innovative breakthroughs to have the most timely and significant impact
  • Enhance and expand networks with like-minded innovators in the energy field
