Exactly one month to go ! Then Innotribe @ Sibos will kick-off for an exciting week of inspiring presentations, face to face discussions, interactive workshops, and special challenges – all aimed at one single goal: enabling collaborative innovation.
Feel the heat building up at www.innotribe.com. The community is buzzing of new ideas. As you will see, our Innotribe Leaders have changed gears and are now posting very actively to collect your ideas to work on them during our Innotribe Sibos Labs from 14-18 Sep 2008 in Hong-Kong.

So, here is our 2nd News Flash on Innotribe.
Today, more detailed information about the Innotribe Sibos Labs.
The Innotribe Sibos Labs are one of the key components of Innotribe. These are interactive workshops, fully equipped with tools and connectivity, to brainstorm on new ideas but more importantly to make these ideas tangible in application mock-ups or prototypes. These Sibos Labs will be led by the Innotribe leaders helped by professional facilitators from The Value Web. Additional help is offered to the participants by two Venture Capitalists acting as "consultants" to the teams. The Value Web will simultaneously scribe to advice / assist groups in packaging their idea. We will also have a number of PC’s with internet connectivity available to help documenting the ideas and to possibly make some mock-ups of applications illustrating the ideas.
The objective of the first Innotribe Sibos Lab on 14 Sep 2009 is to generate ideas and selection criteria to be used for evaluating the ideas. First we will create working groups per theme: Cloud, Crowd, Mash-up. Participants are asked to join the group of their "prime interest". "Prime" implies that the topic is not exclusive and leaves space for transversal ideas. Each team goes in a dedicated space, and find an assignment. The groups will brainstorm with the Innotribe leaders on how the Cloud, Mash-up and Crowd trends can transform the industry. "knowledge kiosks" will propose food for thought in free access: Hand-out with ideas from the swiftcommunity.net, any document collected upfront, etc. Groups will reflect on the criteria that would best qualify the ideas proposed. New assignments will be brought in, to shift the focus of the discussion. The challenge is to introduce the filtering process without restraining the creativity of the group. Assignment shall be more of an invitation. Expected outcome is a first draft of idea/ideas and a documented set of relevant criteria
The objective of the second Innotribe Sibos Lab on 15 Sep 2009 is to narrow down ideas to likely candidates to be developed further and “sold” to buyers panel during the Innotribe Closing. The groups will go back in same configuration as day before and iterate and their ideas. The assignment will invite to select one idea before going forward (if not already done). This session will be about refining your ideas – give them spin & shine. The Value Web facilitator will suggest many different tools and techniques to sell their ideas (glossy add, marketing with the public, raising capital, getting developers to mock up, using the VCs etc…). We will also use Guy Kawasaki’s 10/20/30 rule for making good pitches. Expected outcome is to have framed idea(s) – the core of what the teams will present to the buyer’s panel should be clear.
During the third Innotribe Sibos Lab on 16 Sep 2009, we will mock the ideas up in order to get them ready for a presentation to the jury on the next day. The groups go back in same configuration as day before and iterate and their ideas. Facilitation will invite to further refine outside of the time & space that is offered in the Lab.
During the dry-runs on 16 Sep 2009 late afternoon, participants will refine their presentation and prepare for the oral with the buyer’s panel.
The Innotribe Sibos Labs will culminate into the presentation to the buyer’s panel during the Innotribe Closing on 17 Sep 2009. Each team will get maximum 8 minutes to give a condensed power presentation. More on the Innotribe closing in one of our next Innotribe News Flashes.
