Updates from Ingelheim: Crowning 7 'Co-Creation Pioneers for 2016'
Earlier this month, seven co-creation teams from around the world—each made up of one social entrepreneur and one Boehringer Ingelheim employee—traveled to Ingelheim, Germany, to pitch their health innovations live to a panel of judges. The three-day Co-Creation Summit was the first of its kind for Boehringer Ingelheim, with participants coming together to work on their business models, scalability and sustainability plans, and to fine-tune the win-win-win nature of these pioneering collaborations.
After months of connecting, co-creating and most recently short listing and deliberating, we are delighted to welcome 7 fantastic Co-Creation teams to participate in our final leg of this pioneering global challenge. Phase 3 will see these Co-Creation teams participate in a 6-week Co-Creation Accelerator, where social entrepreneurs and Boehringer Ingelheim employees will work together to produce a Co-Creation business model canvas and prepare a pitch.
