Open Innovation Challenges

Enterprises globally are looking to embrace Open Innovation by harnessing the expertise, innovation and speed of Start-ups to gain market leadership. However, open innovation programs are unable to scale due to the lack of an automated seamless system that helps in scouting, attracting, qualifying and collaborating with Start-ups effectively.

Companies continue to use disjointed systems like email and spreadsheets that makes it difficult for teams across functions and geographies to work cohesively to articulate the challenges, find the right Start-ups and work with them in a productive manner, while the leadership is unable to measure performance and value of such programs.

Also, Start-ups find it intimidating and counter-productive to work in Open Innovation programs with large enterprises, if simplified processes are not implemented.

Outcome Based Intuitive Collaboration - Key to Innovation

IAP is an innovation-focused digital hub that transforms open innovation initiatives into an intuitive collaborative process for internal and external stakeholder groups (driven by proven, home-grown Sambaash Best Practices) . The outcome is a well-orchestrated, constantly running open innovation engine that facilitates relevant stakeholders across the challenge-apply-pitch-pilot-scale process to ensure successful innovation with real-time insights to monitor the performance of each start-up.
