Large organizations are under fire to be more agile- but
that's easier said than done for an innovation team entrenched by bureaucracies
and red tape.

FEI 2016 is here to help by bringing you a jam packed itinerary live from the
head office of MassChallenge Accerator, where you'll experience
corporate/startup partnerships in action, followed by a special startup mixer
with corporate innovation leaders and MassChallenge Alumni startups.
