The return of in-person events brings with it brilliant opportunities to reconnect with legacy contacts while also making new connections at the same time. With Innov8rs embarking on a first State-side event in Austin next week, we’re thrilled to announce that representatives from Wazoku will be there to chat, present, and network with some of the leading lights in global innovation.

Our all-American team of attendees includes Enterprise Account Executives Jon Fredrickson and Molly Cariker, as well as New Business Enterprise Account Executive Stuart Dodson. Across two days, Innov8rs provides the perfect platform for Jon, Molly, and Stuart to interact with attendees and find ways that the Wazoku product can help solve their most pressing innovation conundrums.

“There’s no substitute for speaking with people face-to-face about their concerns and how our product can help them. After a few years of almost exclusively using Teams and Zoom to connect with clients, Innov8rs presents a massively exciting opportunity for myself and the rest of the Wazoku team.”

When they aren’t networking in the exhibition space at the event, our team will be hosting a number of different talks and presentations across the two days. On 1st November, Jon will be co-hosting a session with Brad Chedister, CTIO at DEFENSEWERX. Between them, they will explore how using innovation tools, such as Open Innovation, allows governments and businesses to identify and utilize solutions that simply wouldn’t have been available to them otherwise.

Then, on the 2nd November, Jon and Molly take to the stage to deliver a Learning Lab that looks at How to Build a Network to Accelerate Innovation at Scale. Combining decades-worth of experience in the innovation industry, this partnership will take attendees through customer examples, tips for success, and some fun interactive exercises: all geared towards helping them succeed in creating valuable change through innovation.


If you want to make sure you catch our team at Innov8rs, please feel free to connect with them on LinkedIn, and keep an eye out on our social platforms for updates from the Innov8rs event.
