"Open Innovation" means relying on collaboration and open-mindedness to learn faster and innovate more efficiently.

  • Open Innovation: risky?

    Open Innovation goes against common sense, some will say: if there are no barriers to working together on topics that are not related to the business’ core, then there should no question of being open to conversation on innovation topics or strategies for the company. It is precisely for these integral issues, that a culture of openness will allow a company to innovate better: We would be able to confront the market faster, inspire people, and generate ideas through the opening of an open innovation lab including collaboration with startups, students, and professionals… 

  • Open Innovation to transform teams

    Not only will Open Innovation help you co-create new solutions, but it will also launch or support the evolution of your teams. It is by confronting each other that people, and therefore businesses, are changing.
