Do You Have What It Takes to Win in the Fourth Era of Innovation?

Startups drive the US economy, creating virtually all net-new job growth. Yet in their first year, a quarter of all startups fail, and by the fifth year, 55 percent are gone. What strategies and corporate assets do you need to compete effectively in today's Fourth Era of Innovation, where startups and corporate giants increasingly fight for the same global customers and talent using the same online tools and technologies?

Join Oracle Chairman Jeff Henley, Protiviti Managing Director Steve Hobbs, Innosight Managing Partner Scott D. Anthony, and some of the Bay Area's fastest-growing companies for this invitation-only executive workshop at Leaders Circle @ OpenWorld. Whether you're preparing for an IPO or already competing globally, you'll learn how to create the right global infrastructure, world-class business processes, regulatory expertise, and brand excellence that will not only attract investors and customers, but guarantee your competitive success in the Fourth Era of Innovation.
