Rainmaking Workshop

Navigating Uncertainty

How can CEOs confidently take informed bets that advance the innovation agenda?
Date: Monday 8th June 2020
Time: 16:00 – 17:00
Location: Virtual CogX

“To plan for the future, you first need a clear view of the present, with all of its threats and opportunities.

Rainmaking created Compass™, a tool for executives to gain a dimensional view of fast evolving markets, and identify opportunity spaces based on a thorough analysis of start-up, scale-up and incumbent activity.

In this 90 minutes workshop, you will be experimenting with Compass™ to understand how likely it is for your industry to become disrupted, what are the implications for your business and how to respond to shifting business environments.

This is a great session for leaders that want to take the first step towards building a roadmap with a balanced portfolio of execution vehicles (build/partner/invest) to capitalise on identified opportunity spaces over a period of 36/48 months.

The future of corporate venturing & R&D commercialisation

Date: Tuesday 9th June 2020
Time: 11:00 – 12:00
Location: Virtual CogX

An intimate panel and moderated discussion debunking the myths and misconceptions around CVC, venture building, “strategic” investments, R&D and deep tech venturing. Expert speakers, with decades of experience, will reflect on the hard lessons learned, the frameworks and models they have seen work and fail, the real facts and figures and why it is imperative the industry needs to change.
