Event Details

Historically, innovations started in an industrialized country like the US and those products and solutions were subsequently sold in a developing country like India. Reverse innovation is doing exactly the opposite. It is about innovating first in a developing nation and then bringing those innovations to developed countries. Reverse innovation is a mega opportunity for startup entrepreneurs. This Workshop provides a framework and insights into reverse innovation.  

Vijay Govindarajan, known as VG, is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading experts on strategy and innovation. VG, NYT and WSJ Best Selling author, is the Coxe Distinguished Professor at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business and the Marvin Bower Fellow at Harvard Business School. The Coxe Distinguished Professorship is a new Dartmouth-wide faculty chair. He was the first Professor in Residence and Chief Innovation Consultant at General Electric. He worked with GE’s CEO Jeff Immelt to write “How GE is Disrupting Itself”, the Harvard Business Review (HBR) article that pioneered the concept of reverse innovation – any innovation that is adopted first in the developing world. HBR picked reverse innovation as one of the Great Moments in Management in the Last Century. In the latest Thinkers 50 Rankings, Govindarajan was ranked the #1 Indian Management Thinker.
