Our Alliances: Innovation Partnership Program
Advancing innovation in industry, education and business
Deloitte Consulting LLP (“Deloitte”) has formed an alliance with the X PRIZE Foundation, a leader in solving grand challenges through large-scale, global incentivized competitions and Singularity University, a unique Silicon Valley educational institute and business incubator which explores the disruptive influences and global growth opportunities of exponentially advancing technologies, to form the Innovation Partnership Program (IPP).
Combined with Deloitte’s leading experience in strategy & operations, human capital, and technology consulting services, the IPP alliance will leverage its strengths to drive innovation across multiple industries and business sectors.
Connecting senior business leaders from iconic companies including Google, Shell, Qualcomm, Hershey’s, and Sprint, IPP hosts selective membership-based programs consisting of a wide array of workshops on crowdsourcing, the rapid advancement of exponential technologies, and how to innovate through incentivized competitions.
“IPP brings an unparalleled value proposition to the market. The goal is to bring together the critical elements required by businesses seeking to become ‘exponential’ organizations -- awareness, education, relationships, and know-how. Deloitte adds a crucial element with the ability to assist companies in customizing and implementing their innovation strategies resulting from IPP.”
-- Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, chairman and chief executive officer, XPRIZE; executive chairman, Singularity University
“IPP not only provides unique access to relevant thought leaders and entrepreneurs, but also introduces an important vantage point and exposure to the key drivers and pace in which various emerging innovations– technological and organizational – will transform the business landscape in the near-term and longer-term.”
--Bert Alfonso, executive vice president, chief financial officer and chief administrative officer, The Hershey Company
“IPP provides corporate leadership teams with access to an expanded ecosystem of some of the world’s top entrepreneurs, inventors, scientists, technologists, innovation strategists, and business thought leaders, thus providing participating companies with a broader lens as to the potential non-traditional threats and opportunities their industries and businesses are -- or will be – facing. IPP is a process versus just an event, giving members continuous exposure to the latest thinking and relationships required to capitalize on innovation-driven business transformation.”
-- Marcus Shingles, principal, Deloitte Consulting, LLP
