After 8 versions of the PIC, we decided it was time to have a look back and see what has happened to some of the previous PIC participants.
Welcome to the “PIC Fireside chats”, an informal live virtual chat with innovators  from previous PIC events, where the audience can find out how they came up with their innovation, what they have been up to, and what is coming next. We will also tap them for insights on what makes a good innovation nowadays.

Previous PIC innovators have shared with us some of the stories and positive knock-on effects from the PIC. This has taken many forms; building new business contacts with a common mindset which turned into something magical, exposure on a larger stage as an innovator leading to growth, having peers validate what you already may know – that your smart idea may have legs to become so much more, and even helping some folks to grow and achieve on a more personal level. Well, we wanted to share some of those with you.

The first Fireside chat takes place on the 15th of October, 2020 at 5pm CEST. Previous winners Wouter Maagdenberg (2020), Giulia Tarditi (2019), and Ola Persson (2018), and dragon Yuka Nakasone will join Dave Ruane and Alex Bernet. They will discuss where innovation is at for each of them, how anyone can make a difference with an innovative idea, and how the PIC helped them on their journey.

As well as getting some innovative insights, attendees will also have an opportunity to network with other participants during the innovation networking session, which takes place straight after the panel.
