YOU ARE A KEY PLAYER IN INNOVATION

 

Accelerator / Incubator

Helping innovators is your passion and role. You mobilize all your best mentors, create shared platforms and even give them resources ($) to help them accelerate and succeed. However, it is very difficult for you to follow-up and know if your actions are (really) helping them. We all know only some of them survive. What about going deeper and understanding why and how to do better?. At the same time, you increase your own indicators and please your stakeholders.

 

Research Network

Researchers and knowledge creators need your help. Thanks to your actions and resources ($), they are able to set up new pilot projects and shared platforms, train students and mobilize expertises around the world. What is difficult for you is to follow-up and see if your efforts are maximizing the potential outcomes. Understanding better what is going on in their research ecosystem, you could help them even more. At the same time, you can collect all the indicators you need to please your funders.

 

Entrepreneur

You think you can change the world... We are sure you can! but what a challenge when everything is going so fast!. You know you have to follow-up and understand the needs of your customers, the moves of your competitors, providers, experts, regulators, etc. At the same time, your new innovative project needs a robust business model, then you need evidence that helps you decrease the project's risk for you and your potential investors. You need to understand your innovation ecosystem faster if you want to change that world.

 

Funder / Investor

Money, money, money! All of them want it to innovate. But you want to make a smart decision when choosing what project and team could do the most with it. You have developed an excellent instinct to identify them, but sometimes you are not sure and find difficult to see and evaluate objectively the potential outcomes and follow-up the new trends and innovative technologies. You need to be aware of what's going on out there and who could do the best and impact further with your money.
