Fish Ladder at the Polish Business Council

16 May 2017

Open innovation at the boundaries of science, technology and arts is our forte. In April, it was our pleasure to present this subject to the members of the Polish Business Council – an association of the country’s leading entrepreneurs.

The Polish Business Council, an association of the country’s top entrepreneurs, invited us to start a discussion on how creative competencies can add value to business, science and public affairs.

The starting point for the discussion was our report “Open Innovation at the boundaries of creative industries, science and business” prepared by Fish Ladder and PwC Polska. Fish Ladder was represented by Jan Pomierny and Łukasz Alwast (who were the report’s co-authors), while Tomasz Bagiński, member of the Supervisory Borad of Platige Image, represented the company.

The role of innovation in modern economy

– New growth models for enterprises and organisations have come about as a result of increasing focus on the importance of creative competencies. At the same time, new tools and platforms have enlarged the scope for cross-fertilisation between design and business, education and entertainment, as well as society and industry in general. Creative professions increasingly influence the creation of products and services, or the manner in which we interact with public institutions – pointed out Łukasz Alwast, Fish Ladder’s Project Lead and co-author of the report.

We appreciated the opportunity to present a number of our projects, and in addition, detailed case studies of work pursued by the European Space Agency, New Lab, Frog Ventures, CERN Media Lab, R/GA Ventures, Dubai Future Foundation and T-Mobile’s hub:raum.
