Announcing our Co-Creation Pioneers of 2016!

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.
