About Innovation Lab

The first PC in Denmark blew up. Since then, the IT-guru Preben Mejer did better. After introducing the PC to the Danes, he also presented them with the internet. In 2001 he met Mads Thimmer and together they started Innovation Lab. Since its inception, Innovation Lab has been a constant probe into new digital technologies, new digital business models and new digital organizational formats. It has established an international network comprising close to 2500 connections within worldwide research, product development and entrepreneurship. Through talks, articles, workshops, seminars and projects they provide a comprehensive list of the potentials and challenges facing businesses and organisations. In 2013 Innovation Lab, now owned and managed by Mads Thimmer, reinvented itself as a cluster of 15 individual companies. This was a transition from organisation to organism, intended to bring together the best of corporate culture and entrepreneurship. Find out more on http://innovationlab.net/
