THE INNOVATION SCOUT
More than ever before companies are working with startups and other participants in the Innovation Marketplace to help them reach their innovation goals faster and with less risk. Startups help companies like yours see what is possible with emerging technologies and a fresh new approach to the market. The Innovation Scout is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that helps corporations to discover, engage and run pilots with startups and open research. What is special about our platform is the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to match relevant startups with corporate business challenges.
Why Work With Startups?
Industries are being disrupted by startups. 82% of businesses believe working with Startups is "somewhat critical" to their business. Business models have become transitory. There is no systematic or cost-effective way for corporations to find, test, and integrate emerging technologies and new business models. As an example, the Financial Services industry stands to lose $150B to Startups in the coming years. Corporations and Startups are working together in new important ways. Working with Startups and other available intellectual property allows corporations to innovate cost effectively and recognize gains within shorter intervals. Startups get to market more quickly and give mature businesses a front row seat to new ideas.
