Using Agile Principles to Get Funding for Your Big Ideas

How you sell an innovative idea is as important as the idea itself. By using Agile principles, you can dramatically increase your chances of not only getting rapid support for your ideas, but evolving the idea into a profitable opportunity.

To get your ideas heard and funded in complex corporate environments, you need to become a Savvy Corporate Innovator. Learn how to:

  • Systematically transform ideas into real business opportunities
  • Powerfully communicate ideas in a way that executives need to hear
  • Find and present the exact business information executives expect during a funding request
  • Prepare yourself for the ultimate funding presentation – the executive inquisition
  • Build your career and brand as a respected innovator
