Caralynn Nowinski Collens

CEO, UI LABS

Caralynn Nowinski Collens is many things: licensed physician, researcher, entrepreneur, venture capitalist, CEO.

At the helm of UI LABS, Caralynn oversees a one-of-its-kind innovation accelerator that brings together academia, startups, government, and public sector companies in “unnatural” relationships that help drive technologies to market faster.

By catalyzing these unnatural partnerships, UI LABS enables many organizations to accomplish things together that they could not achieve on their own (e.g. digitizing a factory).

Caralynn shares 5 benefits of unnatural alliances:

1.Think differently. Unnatural alliances enable you to gather fresh insight, define problems in new ways.

2.New ways of doing. Reimagine a problem and come up with a solution that disrupts the status quo.

3.Another platform. Experimenting together often brings about solutions faster.

4.Take new risks. Partner organizations can take risks together they would normally shy away from.

5.Fresh resources. Tap into talent, knowledge, and assets outside your own walls.
