Innovation At A Launch Party

Who says that every occasion can’t be an opportunity for innovation? We certainly would not.

Our official launch party was a huge success!

Festive beverages, amazing innovative leaders and a whacky photo contest with Vince Vaughn. #CleverCaption winner: Dr. Timm Crowder, Innovation and Technology Scout at GlaxoSmithKline, took home the bacon with this busines-as-usual caption: “We’ll just run this by the Director of Status Quo and VP of No and get back to you.”

No long speeches or silly network games, just some amazing professionals partying on the Google Rooftop Patio & Entrepreneurs Lounge American Underground @Main in Durham to celebrate a process that delivers actionable plans in less than 48 hours.

Leaders from major brands such as IBM, Cisco, Lenovo, GSK, Quintiles, Duke Medicine, Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, RTI and more came out to experience just a taste of the 48 Innovate magic.

Check out the #launchparty48 wrap up for photos and to see all the excitement and how we BRING IT with a side of innovation to help transform the world of business one 60-second speech at a time!

You can enjoy the party favors too – we have extra secret idea-reveal message pens, T-shirts and wicked offers left over. Email us to request your prize pack – Subject: 48 Prize Pack – to
