Innovation 101: Creating a Compelling Pitch
Alumni attendees learned how to create a blueprint for preparing and pitching their ideas to institutional leadership, grantmakers, collaborators, colleagues, and other current and future stakeholders. They also discovered strategies for cost-effectively pilot testing their ideas to support operational feasibility.
One free coaching session was given away to a lucky attendee.
Roy Rosin, MBA, Chief Innovation Officer at Penn Medicine, uses his business acumen to guide providers and clinical teams in refining, testing, and successfully pitching ideas for clinical and operational improvements. He works with thought leaders from across the healthcare industry to turn their ideas into measurable impacts in the areas of health outcomes, patient experience, and new revenue streams.
Previously, Roy served as the first vice president of innovation for Intuit, a leading software company best known for Quicken, QuickBooks, and TurboTax. At Intuit, he led changes in how the company manages new business creation, allowing small teams pursuing new opportunities to get to market and experiment rapidly. He also built innovation programs that dramatically increased entrepreneurial activity. Annual new releases increased from five to 30 per year, while time to market decreased from a year to a few months. After five years of Intuit’s new approach to growth, the company had delivered shareholder returns 33 times that of the S&P 500. Roy received his MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and graduated with honors from Harvard College. He serves as board member and angel investor for venture-funded startups and an advisor to Fortune 100 companies.
