The American Innovation Index

Join Us for the American Innovation Conference

Hosted by Fordham University

The American Innovation Conference is dedicated to sharing, collaborating, and celebrating customer-focused innovation and its impact on company success. Companies that are perceived to be innovative by their customers are more attractive, enjoy higher loyalty, and are ultimately more successful than companies that lag in innovativeness. Join us to hear success stories and lessons learned from the most innovative companies in America, such as Aflac, Airbnb, Amazon, Chick-fil-A, eBay, Ford Motor Corporation, John Deere, Southwest Airlines, Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods to name a few.
