At Bosch, new ideas are a thriving tradition. Around the world, thousands of Bosch employees develop new products and work with external partners to systematically improve and innovate those already developed every day. The fruit of this collective effort is manifested in about 4,600 patent applications filed in 2014 alone.

Find out what the secret is of this company’s success and how you can apply that secret to your own business.

There will also be an opportunity to listen to our next generation of entrepreneurs. Working within a leading global business is not guarantee of success in business. Sometimes the most important lessons can be learnt through operating on a smaller scale. Hear from former Young Enterprise participants. Be amazed by the truly successful businesses they started after leaving education. Find out why these entrepreneurs are so successful and what big business can learn from them.
