Connecting you to the start-ups that matter


Companies are starting to recognize the tremendous value potential of third party innovation—as either ecosystem partners or acquisitions—which can help drive revenue growth, cost reduction and improve risk management. While there is no shortage of innovative start-ups that companies can consider, the challenge is finding the ones that fit with your company’s processes, systems and culture. Successfully filtering can be difficult and time consuming.

Innovation-as-a-Service helps clients navigate this process by providing senior executives with direct access to the best digital innovators and entrepreneurs from across the globe. We work with clients to help them gain early access to the latest trends and technologies, filter and make sense of which start-ups and technologies could be most valuable, and help design the highest impact pilots and partnerships for their business.
