Navigate International Markets: Product Development without Borders – Dec 7th @CaltechEntForum

Offshore Innovation:

Product Development without Borders

Saturday, December 7, 2013

We all experience global outsourcing in our daily lives – in products we buy, in software we use, in online “help” when we need it. It’s been decades since key business operations have been off-shored for apparently unlimited access to cost-effective resources. But are we missing the real value in international business development?

Innovation is key to competitiveness and growth for every business sector, but it’s vital for small and medium business. Increasingly, US companies are looking overseas for innovation and entrepreneurs abroad are successfully bringing their products onshore. What are the opportunities for entrepreneurs to leverage offshore inventions in the US or R&D capabilities offshore for their own product design?

Whether you want to pick up good practices from international experts, or hear stories from those who have “been there, done that”, this event will help you find out how to navigate international waters for innovation and profit.

Featured speaker by Skype from Tel Aviv is Dr. Kira Radinsky, Co-Founder and CTO of Sales Predict, 2013 award winner of the Innovator Under 35 by MIT Technology Review.
