Meanwhile, Kris Poria says, “Finding innovators that can help a business does not always have to come from inside a company. We like to show businesses how they can look within their current staff and employees to come up with ideas and opportunities but then help them identify potential innovators that already have a solution. Our platform teaches businesses how to encourage their employees to be that early adopter that a company needs to grow.”
The EarlyBirds open innovation ecosystem is expected to play a key role in how business apply of a new technology, for instance robotics and autonomous systems, quantum computing and many other emerging technologies. This is because it offers a B2B open ecosystem where businesses can find innovators or developers of disruptive technologies. In addition, subject matter experts (SMEs) are participating as consultants to help businesses to solve challenges and seize opportunities by working collaboratively with customers and innovators.
The EarlyBirds open innovation ecosystem consists of a platform with over 1Million innovators that can be searched for innovative solution options. There is an innovation project function for team collaboration, shortlisting and curation of candidate solutions.
