We empower partners
to reach the next level

In an Open Innovation ecosystem it’s fundamental to build strong bonds with third parties that also believe in innovation and digital transformation. We are partners with over 100 organizations and institutions to improve Open Innovation practices, share our expertise, portfolio and develop verticalized programs.

We have vast experience in playing the corporate-startup collaboration game. We’ve succeeded, failed, learned and stood up again, gaining competitive advantage through our learnings.

Our goal is to empower partners to reach the next level when it comes to overall innovation, creating a cross impact in the company.
