Follow us on a Listening Tour to understand how corporate innovation groups thrive, bumble, or fumble

Corporate Innovation Groups (CIGs) are charged with making new, high-risk possibilities a reality. They are often outfitted with shiny new lab spaces and some autonomy to explore new opportunities. Some groups have successfully innovated by taking measured risks their executives could tolerate; others, however, fail to remain relevant. 

This summer, Peer Insight Ventures will hit the road to talk with insiders who have lived through the ups and downs of setting up and running Corporate Innovation Groups (CIGs) that are tasked with exploring adjacent and breakthrough growth opportunities for their respective organizations. Building on our 14 years in the field, we'll investigate the success and failure modes of CIGs and identify ways teams can build a more resilient innovation capacity at their organization.




We want you to join the conversation! We invite you to share your questions, ideas and experiences. We’ll update you about insights we’ve gathered and how our thinking evolves via our newsletter, our community content page, and solicit your input as we go along. 


Spotlight Reading on Corporate Innovation Groups: 


The Listening Tour

We're putting our hunches to the test by conducting a listening tour with leaders of Corporate Innovation Groups (CIGs) with a diverse set of experiences to understand how they’re thinking about risk, business model innovation, and realizing new ventures in the market.

From the stories we hear, we'll synthesize the learnings into actionable insights for you and your team, like...

  • Strategies that have worked to navigate/avoid common failure modes

  • Ways to identify and flag warning signs within your own CIG and how to address them before they become make or break issues

  • Collective wisdom from earlier trailblazers that will allow your CIG to remain hyper-focused on getting to that first dollar of revenue


Sign-up to follow along and shape the journey!

We don’t want this to be a one-way conversation! At Peer Insight we practice radical transparency, so we’ll share out what we’re hearing as we go and invite you to offer up additional questions or areas to probe based on your own experiences.

What you'll receive...

  • Periodic newsletters with exclusive interviews and content from our conversations with CIG leaders

  • Chances to speak directly with the Peer Insight Ventures team about your ideas and experiences

  • An invitation to a webinar event at the conclusion of the listening tour where we share what we heard and how we made sense of it

  • Tools and templates that you can apply to your corporate innovation challenges
