Why us?
Corporate Innovation Know-How
We build our service on a deep understanding of internal innovation challenges in big corporations, as well as lean startup methods applied by disruptive challengers. Our experts have gained their experience from more than a decade of supporting corporate innovation processes in Europe, USA and Asia..
Ecosystem Reach & Relationships
Our corporate clients leverage us as a single point of contact within the European ecosystem. Our international network includes hundreds of accelerators, VCs and local scouting partners.
Focus on Results
We want our corporate clients to innovate faster. That’s why we focus on matching corporations with companies that have ready-to-pilot solutions and can become trusted partners soon.
Outsource scouting efforts
to our specialist teams.
Just like potential employees, the best tech pioneers are usually already busy working for other companies. They do not have the time to pitch at startup events or submit forms online. We know how to find them anyway, across languages and countries.
  • Look beyond the obvious. Discover true gems.
  • Save time on search and selection.
  • Focus your energy on fast implementation.
How it works
Leverage our proven process to find solutions for your project:
The magic of finding innovative solutions lies in defining the right brief. Our experts will define the elements of the perfect solution, putting together the requirements of your customers and different corporate departments.
Scouting sprints
Incorporating agile practices, we work on a shortlist of potential candidates in sprints. The project usually includes four sprints, of two weeks each. This allows you to refine or broaden your search with every iteration, getting closer to ideal solutions faster.
Step by step, we identify a shortlist of the best candidates. We reach out to entrepreneurs directly and gather more information to make the final decision easier.
Pilots & deals
We help define the best pilots and experiments and stand on your side whenever necessary to negotiate win-win deals for you.
