        COMMON GROUND FOR UNCOMMON INNOVATORS

        Synthesize is the first-ever conference hosted by Brightidea for current and aspiring users of our Innovation Management Platform.

        Come join us on October 13 and 14 in San Francisco, where you’ll meet fellow idea makers as they share their experiences in managing the innovation process.
