Managed corporate innovation program services
Giving corporates the agility to innovate.
As corporates grow and get tied up in regulations and governance, they lose their ability to swiftly act on the ideas and innovations that fuelled their growth. In the words of Clayton Chrisensen “Smart companies fail because they do everything right. They cater to high-profit- margin customers and ignore the low end of the market where disruptive innovations emerge from.”
Opening up the routes to disruptive innovation
Our Managed Corporate Innovation Program Services enable corporates to reach beyond the confines of their own structures and directly invest and participate in disruptive technology innovations.
