Colgate Palmolive Tackles Internal-External Partnerships at InnoCos USA

Posted in Blog, Business Issues

If there's one thing I've learned about being in this industry, it's that ideas are continuously spurred, borrow, revamped, recycled and/or rebranded. What's the saying? There's nothing new under the sun. The beauty industry sees a lot of crossover from food and supplements (and even pharma). Taking this a step further … oftentimes, creating external partnerships can help personal care companies leverage their current technologies and internal initiatives. Many times, examples and partnerships with industries outside of personal care can be advantageous.  

This is an intricate and detailed process, and who better to advise you on suggested collaborations than the personal care giant Colgate Palmolive. Fabienne Jacquet, director of external innovation at Colgate, will be presenting, "Combining internal collaboration and external partnerships for better and quicker innovation" at InnoCos USA, July 12, 2012 at 9:35 a.m.

Topics include:

  • Identifying the right external partners and bringing them early on in the innovation process
  • Connecting scientists to the consumer and the business partners
  • Leveraging processes from other industries to speed-up innovation
  • Bringing cross-functional interaction to the next level
