2022 Ecosystem Predictions — Innovation in Legacy Companies: 2022 Embracing Sustainability

Predictions by Devon Laney

Executive Director, 36 Degrees North

Innovation can be a difficult concept to grasp in legacy companies. It is often seen as something that only newer, more progressive companies with a lot of risk-taking and willingness to change their business practices can do well. But what if we were able to find ways for innovation in legacy companies? How would it look different from the traditional entrepreneurial company?

In this interview, Devon explores how sustainable innovation can be embraced by larger, older businesses through prioritizing sustainability and finding innovative solutions within these constraints in 2022 and offers a few examples of how we will see this trend unfold in the Heartland.

“Innovation can be evolutionary that legacy companies can deploy systemically.”
