Innovation Radar – who don’t you know?

“The radar search lead to several highly interesting companies & experts found. We would do it again.”

Louise Tosti-Johansen, LEGO

Those responsible for bringing new products and services to market are under increasing pressure to improve their innovation hit rate and do so more quickly. Though some may have a well-established innovation process, clients often lack the right partners to collaborate with, and lose out on the benefits of open innovation than can be achieved by innovating together.

“We have at least four concrete projects being progressed from the Innovation Radar pilot which is a super result.”

Neil Lant, P&G

This service delivers a smarter way to discover things that would otherwise take you longer and cost you more. And the activities that support this approach can be tailored to suit your organisation’s innovation process and methodology.

“The targeted search of ventures using the Radar service generated considerable interest and created several opportunities that we are pursuing.”

Kate Ainscough, E.ON
