Innovation is a messy process – hard to manage and even harder to measure. When revenues and earnings decline during a crisis, it’s easy write off your innovation efforts as ‘too risky’ or ‘just not worth it’. But if this year has taught us anything – it’s that when done right, innovation is our secret weapon against market slowdowns and a beacon for rejuvenating growth.
Tech in Motion is proud to bring you a 3-part mini-series all about disrupting your growth strategies for 2021 – covering a range of topics from product innovation to technology leadership, hiring and culture strategies – you won’t want to miss what our panel of award-winning thought leaders have to say.

Ro is the only telehealth company to integrate a nationwide physician network with a nationwide pharmacy network. This enables Ro to handle everything for a patient for the conditions it treats and to improve continuity of care by seamlessly connecting providers and pharmacists. Ro has built its own telehealth platform from the ground-up, including a custom EMR, pharmacy operating system, and online platform allowing for continuous communication by phone, video or secure messaging between providers and patients. Today, this full-stack approach powers three digital health clinics — Roman for men’s health, Rory for women’s health, and Zero for smoking cessation. Through these clinics, Ro provides a personalized, end-to-end telehealth experience from online treatment to the delivery of medication to ongoing care for nearly 20 conditions from weight loss to smoking cessation to sexual health.
Valqari’s foresight in identifying the need for Drone Landing Stations and overcoming numerous obstacles in taking that idea to market, demonstrates both the agility and resilience required to turn a startup into a success story. Valqari has pivoted in response to both threats and opportunities, and now has a global footprint, with partners and allies from Australia, South Africa, Europe, Canada and across the US. From 2 partners in a small office in Plainfield, IL, the company has grown to over 20 members, responding to opportunities to bring manufacturing in house, expanding into international markets and developing the product from a basic landing pad, to a whole system- connected to the IoT.
Look out for parts 2 & 3 of the series coming soon!
