Technology Scouting and Brokerage

Find emerging technologies by using a multitude of unique partners worldwide, thanks to our direct Network and Open Innovation channels we manage.

The prime reason our methodology is so effective is that most of our partners have access to their own extensive networks, which gives your company unprecedented access to a global pool of emerging technology leads.

R&D Program and Portfolio Management

Globalization of markets and new business practices are prompting high-tech companies to reconsider their competitive strategy. The increasing complexity of technologies in addition to shorter product life cycles are also forcing companies to rely on R&D as a source of strategy. More importantly, firms are inclined to evaluate their technologies from a portfolio’s perspective in which a set or a sub-set of R&D projects is evaluated together, in relation to each other.

Portfolio techniques can help strategic managers in evaluating whether a portfolio of products is adequate from the perspective of long-term corporate growth and profitability. Obviously, when R&D projects are evaluated relative to one another, technical capability management of such projects must be carried out concurrently.

Innovation Management

Innovation management is the discipline of managing processes in Innovation. It can be used to develop both product, service and organizational innovation. Innovation management includes a set of tools that allow managers and engineers to cooperate with a common understanding of goals and processes.

The focus of innovation management is to allow the organization to respond to an external or internal opportunity, and use its creative efforts to introduce new ideas, processes or products. Importantly, innovation management is not relegated to R&D; it involves workers at every level in contributing creatively to a company’s development, manufacturing, and marketing. By utilizing appropriate innovation management tools, management can trigger and deploy the creative juices of the whole work force towards the continuous development of a company. The process can be viewed as an evolutionary integration of organization, technology and market by iterating series of activities: search, select, implement and capture.

Project Governance

Project governance is the management framework within which project decisions are made. Project governance is a critical element of any project since while the accountabilities and responsibilities associated with an organization’s business as usual activities are laid down in their organizational governance arrangements, seldom does an equivalent framework exist to govern the development of its capital investments (projects).

Investments and Grants

In a world where many people are becoming familiar with the concept of crowd funding, and where the sustain abilities of Innovations is often grounded on financial aspects, we work hard to propose to our customers any kind of access to: institutional investors, crowd funding initiatives, USA and EU funds, and so on.
