We aren’t just exploring innovation—we’re applying it. Our approach to open innovation is different.
Through a holistic process we call the Innovation Molecule, we enable companies to collaborate with an ecosystem of collaborators, from startups to Big Tech, to solve major enterprise problems today. The benefits of our unique approach? Faster and cheaper technology development, innovative products and services, and new paths to market.
We work with our clients to imagine, build and deploy solutions—swiftly and with less risk. After the client obtains business executive-level sponsorship and participation, we start our Innovation Molecule process, a method that helps our clients produce tangible and scalable results from their innovation projects. The Molecule aims to develop best-in-class solutions through a combination of design thinking, innovation matching and piloting. The outcomes are enterprise-ready solutions, scaled development and pride of ownership.
