The Los Angeles Business Journal is excited to host the Inaugural Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Symposium. Los Angeles is the reputed world center of innovation. The symposium has been designed to create a venue to showcase, remind and inform Angelenos of just why this is, as well as educate business leaders on how innovative ideas can affect company profitability and the end-user experience.

Building off of the success and popularity of the Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Awards held for the past four years, this year the Business Journal will introduce a half-day symposium that will begin with breakfast and progress through a series of nine guest speakers, including Dean Yortsos of USC Viterbi School of Engineering and other community business leaders. Attendees will have an opportunity to be inspired by local innovators’ sharing of their expertise on innovation in California. Please join us for a Patrick Soon-Shiong day of innovation, inspiration, and recognition.

What will I learn?

  • How innovation drives business success
  • How innovation can be integrated into workplace culture
  • How to overcome adversity in your company’s path to creating innovation
  • What businesses in Los Angeles are doing to stay ahead of the curve and what innovations are on the rise
