Enterprise Tuesday – Driving Scalable Disruption through Scientific, Product and Business Innovation

18:00 - 21:00 |

With guest speaker Dr Darrin Disley OBE, CEO of Mogrify, entrepreneur, angel investor and enterprise champion

A disruptive innovation is one that either changes the purchasing behaviours or experience within an existing market or creates a new market by identification of an unmet need that could drive wide-spread change at a domestic, environmental, industrial or societal level. The advance of technology, connectivity, data, innovation culture and the need for adaptive business practices is driving scalable disruption today. Is it technology that drives disruption (e.g. customisation of product to optimise sell-side sales) or customer behaviour (e.g. desire for a unique buy-side experience)? What strategies do companies need to employ to ensure they fulfil unmet current needs of consumers and adapt quickly to emerging threats and opportunities as markets change? How do they know when to disrupt their own innovation and markets? What are the risks and what happens if they fail to innovate and disrupt? A leading entrepreneur and investor discusses his experiences at the helm of leading tech and biotech businesses.
