Michael Grall, CEO, AfibAlert


Co-Innovation Labs are innovative ways for corporations to address disruption geared toward more rapid, active learning through unique frameworks while working on real world business problems. We call these an essential tool for future-proofing both companies and individuals.

We run these as company-specific projects or collaborative efforts to take advantage of cross-pollinated thinking and to execute potential partnership toolkits in highly charged spaces.

Our framework is designed to be a scalable, repeatable model for addressing disruption that can be spun up or down depending upon need, technological advancement, or unexpected competitive threat.

Outcomes can be diverse: re-skilling and building internal muscle in technical teams with experiential learning in rapidly changing disruptive tech areas,  advancing a new idea or product, exploring new business models, establishing new partnerships, developing collaborative use cases, developing frameworks for more effective startup-corporate collaboration, and co-developing decision briefs are examples.

We are running three Labs in 2018, each with their own focus and outcomes:


HyperX Madison Lab

Bring your business challenge or idea to a "third-space" for insights, rapid advancement, and unique engagement with university and startup talent

The HyperX Lab is designed for companies to work closely with a vetted, highly qualified multi-disciplinary university team or startup around specific challenges, to explore a new business model, ideate a new product or service, or develop proofs of concept or MVP.

This is a unique program in that it is purposefully independently run to provide a neutral territory for a free-flow of ideas and outcomes, it brings comp sci, engineering, business, physics, communications, art / design and other skills together in highly skilled teams, and provides facilitation, proven frameworks, and high-level mentors to ensure tangible, relevant outcomes.

Teams are carefully curated to ensure highly relevant skillsets and frameworks, facilitation, and mentors are provided to provide high value outcomes. Themes for 2018 revolve around Blockchain, AI, IoT, AR/VR, and other disruptive technologies.

Disruptive Tech Lab - Focus on Blockchain

Technology leads, enterprise architects, and developers learn faster and gain skills through unique hands-on programming and work on ideas and solutions that potentially can be brought back into the enterprise for execution

Our Disruptive Tech Labs are  designed for faster learning, distilling the noise, and providing experiential learning to more effectively re-skill teams in rapidly changing spaces. Our Spring 2018 focus is on Blockchain but our methodology and programs are designed to pivot quickly around AI, IoT, AR / VR, and other disruptive technologies.

The Blockchain Lab's plan for 2018 includes foundational applied learning for enterprise architects and developers and opportunities for hands-on learning while working on real-world business problems while working with university talent, startups and corporates together in unique collaborative experiential learning environments.

Our Learning Lab programs include bootcamps for hands-on learning, open hackathons, Flipped Classroom events, mentor/reverse-mentor opportunities in our Disruptive Tech Sandbox, structured startup interactions, and potentially new or collaborative use cases.

Future of Home-Healthcare Integration Lab

Collaboration and experiential learning programs with opportunities for cross-industry problem solving, corporate-startup collaboration, and rapid go-to-market strategies.

The U.S. healthcare system, with its brick and mortar, provider-centric business model where doctors dispense face-to-face care during scheduled appointments, is ripe for digital disruption. Although many factors have insulated health care for years, change is coming.

Platforms, networks, machine learning and artificial intelligence have enormous potential to solve problems that have plagued the industry for decades, according to Barry Libert, CEO of OpenMatters and a senior fellow at Wharton’s SEI Center for Advanced Studies in Management. Leveraging technology to create safer environments with immediate care offers great opportunities for enhancing quality of care while reducing insurer costs.

Our Home-Healthcare Integration Lab programs focus on collaboration and uncovering new opportunities with cross-industry work groups, focused corporate-startup initiatives, and facilitation for taking ideas to action.
