We would like to give a special thanks to our presenting sponsor, CGI.

One of CGI’s core values is intrapreneurship. While not a startup company, CGI creates a culture that encourages innovation and startup-minded thinking. From giving employees autonomy to come up with business plans for new projects to an innovation program for corporate social responsibility, CGI is committed to fostering entrepreneurial ideas. It was this value of intrapreneurship that initially led CGI to get involved with the Innov865 Alliance.
