It is easier to innovate when not having your nose to the grindstone, but you cannot manage your company the nose in the wind either!
Compromise is: you continue your routine and we tell you when it is interesting to look up.
Therefore, we propose:
- To stimulate innovative projects, open new paths:
Diagnosis and possible developments to gradually integrate innovation process
Animation of working groups, creative sessions, functional and value analysis sessions (multi-disciplinary, multi-actor)
Training (creativity tools, ideas formalization and validation, innovation management)
Identification of ways to integrate an "open innovation" strategy in line with the company's vision.
- Assist you in the strategic and operational management of innovation:
Project audit and development strategy, according to their nature and the company's vision
Implementation of a technological and competitive intelligence
Strategy of diversification or differentiation (products/services)
Innovation marketing, market research, business plan
Industrial property strategy and IP development
"Outsourcing" of innovation with a timeshare engineer to conduct a coherent innovation policy (watch, proposal, implementation, project management, etc.)
- Identification and negotiation of partnerships (R&D, industrial or commercial): communication, validation of interest with market experts, potential licensees identification, assistance in negotiations, support to contracting and transfer, monitoring contracts and their implementation
- For entrepreneurs & startups: IP strategy, assistance in business plan writing and validation, preparation for finding investors, associates, commercial or industrial partners research
- Financial valuation of patents, softwares, web & mobile applications, for capital contribution, due diligence, equity, transfer or assignment.
