Open Innovation Program
Software is eating the world -Marc Andreessen
The world economy is dominated by software giants like GAFA. Its influence extends to every industry, and every company is expected to make corresponding adjustments. Sustainability, design, service, innovation. We hear many keywords, but what can we actually do to move forward? The Open Innovation Program is a solution for a new era, combining companies with excellent technology and knowledge with our extensive network in Silicon Valley and the skillsets of our members with unique backgrounds. We strive to join forces to propose new ideas to the world.

Many mature organizations look to collaborate with start-ups to drive innovation. Although many see this potential, execution faces many difficulties. Larger corporations and startups often lack shared visions or even a common vocabulary. The differences in organizational DNA creates unique challenges for all parties. All of our team members have deep experience in these challenges, whether as a start-up or large corporations. We are confident that we can foster long-term win-win situations.
