Business Innovation Summit

SUMMARY

The University of Wyoming Management & Marketing Department is pleased to announce an opportunity for your company to innovate processes, save money, and improve profitability. The College of Business invites your company to participate in our second semi-annual Business Innovation Summit. This event will enable businesses to tap the innovative power of participating companies, students and faculty to address businesses processes issues and to search for solutions. We fully expect each company to walk away from the event with a number of ideas to improve business. Please check out some highlights from our last event by watching the video below.

This is a multifaceted event, which will include successful student-company project presentations (these projects are presented as a template for other companies to join this innovative effort), faculty research presentations, faculty-led innovation factory sessions (A.K.A. knowledge brokering), and innovation driven networking. In the past year, we have partnered successfully with many companies including:

Walmart                                           Cloud Peak Energy                      Apple          

Black Hills Corporation                     Anadarko Petroleum                   Jonah Bank

Bridger Coal                                     Health Reach                              Cisco Systems  

Ivinson Memorial Hospital                CPA Group of Laramie                 Wyoming Business Council

Our innovative collaborations have resulted in accelerated solutions to fundamental problems these companies face.
