How to create an open innovation program?

Whether you’d like to launch new solutions to market, partner-up with promising founders or engage intrapreneurs in your company we’ll co-create the program with you from A to Z and co-manage it with you. Our structured process ensures you get the results you need.
1. Innovation Gaps Audit & Program Design

We’ll start by defining your innovation goals, the milestones we should achieve on our way to reaching them and the calendar that best works for you. We’ll define together the selection criteria for both entrepreneurs and mentors in order to scout and find exactly what you need.

2. Call for Startups & Mentors

Headhunt the innovators you need through internal scouting, our network of partners, and digital campaigns. We’ll find the startups and mentors you’d partner perfectly with. 

We’ll help you identify & select the local ecosystem players that want to scale their outreach. With both our know-how of the global entrepreneurship ecosystem and all our local partners around the world we’ll build the perfect program to reach your objectives. 

3. Onboarding & intelligent matching

We’ll onboard entrepreneurs and mentors and they’ll use the matching tool for an optimized & organic connection process. Before they start the entrepreneurial journey we’ll make sure they both meet several people and select who they want to work with for the duration of the program.

It’s important that they see how they can add value to each other but also be sure that they’d enjoy working together. 

4. Methodology proven by 100+ programs

The teams will have access to the 8 incubation tools that guide them in creating a validated business plan and with the support of their mentors they’ll resolve doubts and fears in their weekly mentorship sessions.

Our incubation managers will make sure everyone is right on track and no one is falling behind. 

5. Business plans, investment readiness & demo day

Startups obtain a business plan, can receive investment-readiness training and pitch it to you and your stakeholders.

You’ll be able to track who’s on track and who’s falling behind and we’ll support them all throughout the entrepreneurial journey. 

6. Pilot with you & exponential impact

Structure & define how the collaboration process will be in terms of financing, intellectual property, governance, and become a shaping force in your sector.

Your assigned incubation manager will help you understand and manage every detail of your collaboration with startups.
