We are on the most exciting mission

At least 40% of all businesses will die in the next 10 years… if they don’t figure out how to change their entire company to accommodate new technologies.

Make Innovation more visible - Innovation Scouting - Novable

Today’s world needs innovation, especially in these troubled times. The world needs positive innovation and speed. We believe that frictionless innovation flows create better opportunities at scale, not only for the sake of companies, but for the whole society.

Innovation-at-scale almost always passes through corporate innovation. Small, agile organisations are required to spark new ideas and technologies, while industrial power is required to industrialise them.

We want the best of those two worlds brought together. We are technology optimists. We believe that tech innovation can contribute to solving major societal issues and world problems, provided that enough industrial power is injected into the process.

We envision a world where innovation and industry powers connect seamlessly and globally, to speed up the world’s transformation. 

Innovation hides everywhere, not only in high-visibility startups and hot ecosystems. Novable mission is to make innovation more visible and… more innovative, by connecting external innovation to industrial strategies.

Innovation lies everywhere – our mission is to reach all innovation sources and connect them with those who need them.

We want to reach unchartered territories where innovation goldmines are not drilled yet.

We want to make innovation flows more fluid, and contribute to a frictionless value chain.

Currently focusing on startups, our mission will soon extend to reach other innovation sources, both in typology and in geographies.


The Novable technology that matches, deeply.

DeepMatching™ is a breed of advanced data science algorithms, pushing the limits of natural language processing and machine-learning, and especially trained on startups and innovation datasets.
