Breakthrough business models are rippling through society in both the profit and not for profit worlds, allowing new avenues for innovation, research and intervention. In the spring of 2019, the Dubai Association Centre convened over 40 associations in 3 cities (London, Washington and Montreal) to participate in an interactive learning workshop to discuss how new collaborations across sectors are generating new opportunities for shared value. Participants in the workshop series will report back on their learnings and will discuss how their unique positioning allows associations to play a catalyst role in creating strategic partnerships with other sectors, namely: the business sector; governments; and the innovation ecosystem.
