Why Attend

Innovation no more affords the luxuries of unlimited purse strings and endless blue-sky debates. Coupled with the realities of shrinking budgets and ever-changing macro trends, this mean that a big bang approach is no longer the "one-size-fits-all" answer to innovation. The frugal approach is therefore fast emerging as a viable and hugely more feasible alternative. Early movers are already reaping the rewards of Frugal Innovation principles applied to technology innovation within the enterprise.

InnoFrugal UK invites you to hear from and network with professionals and academics like Timo Boldt (Founder and CEO of Gousto), Jaideep Prabhu (University of Cambridge), Khaled Soufani (University of Cambridge), Venkata Gandikota (TNFIS), Joseph Olassa (Ignitho Technologies). We shall be adding new speakers over the coming days - stay tuned!
