Read impressions from the CAF Community

Working for CAF is inspiring. I especially like how Diana Joseph expertly designs the CAF experiences. She creates a space for members to actively engage in open and productive discussions. I have witnessed members eager to share their experiences, knowledge, challenges, and goals. I believe CAF has a lot to offer corporate innovators/accelerators, especially those who are just starting that journey, and those who are ready to move to the next level.

All CAF Programs always provide lot of insights from the struggle of others. Seeing what worked or didn’t work is always a game-changer. Even if every corporate innovation initiative should be personalized; there is great value in learning best practices.

I enjoy the unique design thinking approach to brainstorming and constructive discussions that seem impromptu but is in fact carefully orchestrated to solve a problem, build a thesis, or tease out insights. The other distinctive feature of CAF events which keeps me coming back is the openness of attendees to actively engage and share experiences, there is a sense of community and camaraderie which is rare in other such large group settings in my experience.
