Kellogg Innovation Network KIN

Promoting innovation and long-term value.

The Kellogg Innovation Network (KIN) is a platform for on-going collaboration between Kellogg faculty, corporate innovation leaders, nonprofits and government. Founded in 2003, the KIN facilitates strategy and management dialogue to promote innovation led growth and build long-term value.


The Kellogg Innovation Network (KIN) is reframing the mission and role of a premier business school—as an independent convening platform for accelerating innovation dialogue and action. KIN Global 2009 was a defining moment for Kellogg, bringing together delegates from academia, government, non profits and a wide range of industries: healthcare, technology, defense, utilities and communications to workshop on ideas related to building global prosperity.


We devoted most program time to executives and thought leaders who presented their insights, innovation challenges and open questions. Kellogg faculty members acted as facilitators and synthesizers. Moreover, delegates did not just attend, they participated in the creation of new knowledge.


Prior to, during and after the summit, opportunities were created for delegates to generate meaningful perspectives, research projects and avenues for collaboration. Through events like KIN Global, we are building a network of thought leaders who have the collective ability to advance the global prosperity agenda.
