Hyper Innovation Tech Lab Update

Hyper Innovation Tech Lab
The Tech Lab is a sandbox for de-risking exploration of emerging tech and digital innovation and surfacing new opportunities and partnerships.

Hyper Innovation provides people, tools and frameworks for the Lab and invites innovators, startups, corporations, and universities to sponsor events, define explorations, and join in shared learning to keep an eye on the horizon of "what's next" and accelerate innovation.

Recent highlights from the Lab:

  • Spring 2021 Tech Lab Showcase
    The Showcase included presentations by multi-disciplinary students working with a leading startup to define new applications for cutting-edge VR technology, industry experts from companies including BD Diagnostics and Molson-Coors, and progress updates from digital health entrepreneurs.

  • Fall 2021 Remote Patient Monitoring Sandbox
    Multi-disciplinary student teams are gaining hands-on experience by working with a leading RPM company to identify user experience improvements and out-of-the box ideas for growing the platform.

This year, the Lab is launching Work Groups to accelerate open innovation. These groups are intended to be highly targeted and defined by participants to explore new partnerships and solutions. Typical groups are made up of 3-4 companies with shared interests who define learning goals and shared exploratory projects with tangible outcomes. Learn more about Hyper Innovation Work Groups
