What's in a Name?

When that name is "Innovation Sandbox," it can say a lot. And we hope it does.

Innovation is a major factor for any company or individual aiming for success. It challenges imaginations, opens doors you may never knew existed, creates comradery and can, very possible, change the world. 

A sandbox is a place to experiment, play and have fun. Kids in a sandbox create new cities, build castles, sculpt grainy works of art - imagine as adults what we can do. In our Innovation Sandbox, the industry’s brightest will discuss what’s new and next in a relaxed, interactive format. So, come on in. No pail or shovel needed.

Season 2 kicks off October 1 

with six weekly episodes, every Thursday, 10-10:30 a.m. ET, on our YouTube channel – Prolifics TV.
