The only cross-industry innovation community.

Fuel creativity, expand your network, and inspire innovation opportunities by looking across different industries and creating in the overlaps.

Interactive
Experience.

Your engagement in Shared Spaces starts with an immersive 4-month cohort program where you’ll connect with 30 leaders from various industries. During these 4 months, you will meet remotely on a monthly basis to explore innovations and technologies driving the future of healthcare, mobility, and industrial markets.

After completing the program, you’ll gain access to our growing Shared Spaces Community. This network offers opportunities for continued collaboration and new innovations.

Join a community of
industry leaders.

Industry insights unleashed. 

The industry reports were created in partnership with Ebco Trends, a trend-powered innovation firm. The reports are used throughout the cohort to explore the impact of emerging trends within each industry and how these industries will evolve over the next 3-5 years.

One of the most valuable parts of the program for every Shared Spaces member is the breakout sessions during the cohort meetings. These sessions are designed to foster cross-industry collaboration, where we divide the cohort into groups to tackle questions about how leading companies can harness the potential of the trends outlined in the reports to drive innovation.

For instance, during the mobility cohort meting, the group explored a scenario of how Amazon could revolutionize city movement, using the power of micro-trends like e-mobility, MaaS, and micro-mobility.

How it works

1. Inspiration

Begin your four month journey by looking outside your industry and exploring the trends and innovations driving change in the industrial, healthcare, and mobility spaces.

Engage with 30 cross-functional leaders through interactive whiteboards and virtual meetings as we guide you through the latest trend reports in each of these spaces.

2. Ideation

As you expose yourself to what is happening in different spaces, ideas for innovation will start to emerge. As ideas are curated and evolve, they will be captured in our virtual whiteboard experience.

We’ll focus on new ideas in overlapping spaces and think about how the changes in one space impact another.

3. Action

At the end of your journey, you’ll have the opportunity to express interest in a project. Actions on ideas is where real innovation happens.

Projects can take the form of co-development with other cohort members or your own internal innovation project.

Dates to Remember

Cohort meetings will be on Thursdays from 1-2:30 p.m. ET.
