Imagine if you could efficiently stay close to the vast array of the ideas that are developing in your sector and offer startups and emerging companies the knowledge and support they desire.
Integrating innovation into an organization’s capabilities is a complex undertaking that requires external efforts to stay close to innovations in your sector and prevent competitive disruption and internal efforts to drive an innovation culture and get employees to be more entrepreneurial. Even though innovation is a C-level issue, these efforts are often faced with:
Difficulty staying close to the vast array of innovative and disruptive ideas
Inability to foster a culture of innovation and experimentation with employees
Incubators, accelerators, startup competitions and venture capital efforts that only touch a small number of companies
Inability to engage with and stay connected to a wide variety of ideas in a scalable way
Inability to keep your finger on the pulse of activity efficiently
Lack of brand recognition for the support you are providing
Difficulty assisting a large number of emerging companies
Having a venture capital fund, an innovation team, an incubator and startup competitions is valuable, but are they helping you stay close the many ideas that may disrupt your business? It’s one thing to fund five startups or bring ten into an incubator. It’s quite another to stay close to hundreds of innovative ideas in your space and getting your employees to think like entrepreneurs.
