Want to predict the success

of your innovation partnership?

innopearl!

During over 20 years career in Danone, Novartis, PepsiCo and Mars, I noticed how hard it is to create disruptive innovations inside large organisations. It is one of the reasons why many companies engage in collaborations with external innovators - from early stage startups to more mature businesses. But 89% of innovation partnerships fail.
So, I de-coded what makes an innovation partnership a success and created a way to assess and predict which partners have the highest probability to succeed at scale. This novel solution is sector-agnostic, bias-free, it considers cultural compatibility and anticipates the banana skins in innovation’s integration and scale-up.
My hope is that by increasing the success rate of innovation partnerships we can solve the most critical challenges for the society, planet and business times faster and better!
