Iconopoly: A monopoly derived from creating an iconic brand and/or intellectual property around an iconic product. The term was coined by Trig to describe the unique value of industrial design in creating long term sustainable value for companies.
For the fourth year running, our growing team at Trig Innovation was proud to participate in the Innovate Carolina conference, the annual signature event of the Product Development and Management Association’s Carolinas chapter. Representing Trig at this year’s event were our lead business developer, Lilly Ferrick, video and photography specialist Cristina Fletes-Boutte, and principal and founder Ty Hagler.
Sometimes you hear a compelling speaker, and you just can’t get it out of your head in the following days and weeks. We had this happen to us at last year’s Carolinas PDMA Innovate Carolina conference with David Burney’s compelling breakout session on community-driven innovation through his work at New Kind and Red Hat. And this year, it’s happened again at the same conference, 2012 edition. Thanks a lot, Greg Hopper.
Year after year, we participate in what has become a must for area innovators to fuel their respective creative fires—the Product Development and Management Association’s Innovate Carolina conference. This year marked another stellar conference, hosted last Friday at Raleigh’s Long View Center, an emerging haven for entrepreneurs in the heart of the downtown business district.
Trig Innovation is partnering with the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) as a platinum sponsor for the organization’s upcoming Innovate Carolina conference. The Carolinas chapter of the PDMA is hosting its third annual innovation conference on Friday, April 20, 2012 at the Entrepreneurship Music Arts Collaboration (EMAC) at Raleigh, North Carolina’s historic Long View Center.
