What you'll learn in this entrepreneurship course:

Our NYC Master Class in Corporate Innovation is a hands-on, two-day experiential workshop that gives participants the foundation they need to build and expand innovation programs and initiatives throughout their own organizations.

We’ll also use New York City as our laboratory as we visit, hear from and connect with the best its innovation ecosystem has offer. New York City provides a learning environment for corporate innovation unmatched by any other city in the world. It is not only home to more Fortune 500 companies than any other city but is also one of the largest and most vibrant startup ecosystems in the world.


What will you get from the NYC Master Class?

  • Gain a practical innovation toolkit consisting of the latest skills from lean startup, design thinking, creativity research, and strategic communications.
  • Experience the NYC innovation ecosystem with curated visits to meet with corporate innovation practitioners from large companies and startup accelerators that can provide unique insight into corporate innovation, startup entrepreneurship, and frontier technology.
  • Two hours of post-workshop remote innovation coaching to help guide you in applying what you have learned.
  • A copy of our Innovation Essentials, a short user-friendly guidebook that provides you all the frameworks used throughout the course, glossaries, and further suggested readings.
  • Access to our Slack channel for all attendees of the workshop to continue the learning long after the course is finished.

Who should attend?

  • Innovation leaders, directors, and executives who are passionate about improving their skills and bringing more innovation into their organization.
  • Those involved with learning & development around innovation or digital transformation efforts within their organization.
  • Those interested in building a foundation in design thinking, lean startup, creativity skills and for hands-on tools to apply to their business models.

Why is the NYC Master Class Different?

  • Every GIANT facilitator has lived the reality of innovation, both as an industry practitioner and a startup entrepreneur.
  • Activities are based upon a “flipped classroom” approach wherein participants learn through continuous hands-on and practical exercises.
  • Our facilitators are also academics and educators, so we approach the communication of concepts with a rigor and simplicity that few others can offer.

How do I justify attending to my manager?


This course will uniquely equip me to be an innovation architect within our organization. I will learn the latest skills and and thinking about corporate innovation and return refreshed, invigorated and ready to infuse innovation into all our operations. In addition, I will connect with leading corporate innovation practitioners and tech startups in New York City who can serve as an important resource to leverage our own efforts. Companies and organizations as diverse as Fidelity Investments, Merck, ExxonMobil, Pfizer, Columbia University and the World Bank have all sent employees to GIANT Innovation training to bring these mindsets back to their workplaces.
