Operationalize innovation at scale

.01 Open Innovation & Labs

Integrate innovation ecosystem into your business.

  • Design & manage local or international corporate startup programs
  • Design & implement a unique innovation framework & dashboard for internal & external innovations
  • Facilitate the collaboration between innovators and corporate as a trusted third-party
  • Train operational teams to experiment external solutions in a short time and to measure the value for business

.02 Startup Contest & Corporate Accelerator

An efficient way to address your external ecosystem and reach out to Hack40 Group startup and venture Capitalist networks to scout relevant innovation. You can also use the brand of our scaleup accelerator “avantgarde” to guarantee the success of your open innovation strategy.

The first step is to frame a business or innovation challenge and make it appealing to tech startups. Then the contest is advertised online and through meetups with startup communities. After applications review and selection, Hack40 operates either an on-site solution testing or an event to co-design a convincing proof of concept to guarantee business integration.
