List of Tech and Media Focused Corporate Innovation Labs

Posted on December 19th, 2012 in: Industry Index, Innovation
For many years, forward moving companies have been investing in innovation centers that are being used for companies to tap into new technologies, media,and devices. I’m seeing a growing trend of companies outside of the tech space that are investing in these types of labs, and wanted to start a list that I will maintain for a period of time. To keep things managable, here’s what I’m seeking:

List Requirements
The companies that will make this list must be within the following parameters. Feel free to leave comments of others.

Corporations with over 1000 employees.
Ideally, a lab with a dedicated physical location, resources and staff.
A focus on technology and or media.
Name, URL, and location if available.
