About Our Innovation Community

The Whitespace Corporate Innovation Community has been in existence for two years and was launched to enable corporate innovation leaders and practitioners to come together in an informal environment and connect with each other, discuss and engage with innovation topics, share innovation insights and collaborate 1:1.

The Whitespace team facilitates the community as part of our mission to help filter the noise around corporate innovation and to also help corporate innovators connect, share, learn and collaborate. We have nearly 400 innovation practitioners from across the world in the Community, we’d love to see you join them. It is completely free to join by completing the quick form below.

Community Events

We run innovation community events, workshops and training events throughout the year. Some are delivered by the Whitespace team and some are delivered in partnership with our delivery partners or with other community partners. Where we can we make these free to attend or run on a not-for-profit basis.

Technology & Innovation Executive Roundtable

TIER was created to facilitate senior representatives from both public sector and private sector to convene and discuss the macro topics, trends & themes that incrementally impact on the UK’s economic growth through the application of digital transformation, technology, and collaborative innovation.

To find out more or to request to join the TIER group please contact us.

Innovation Hub

To augment the offline community we also launched a free to use online innovation community platform in early 2019. This enables corporate innovation practitioners from anywhere in the world to engage with each other and also enables corporates to freely promote their open innovation challenges, competitions or events to both startups and other corporates on the platform.
