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, as 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.
Novable envisions a world where innovation and industry powers connect seamlessly and globally in order 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.
Startups may well be the best future-prediction engine ever developed. Innovation comes from small, agile organisations, from people taking risks and pushing boundaries forward. Startups are disrupting whole industries and changing the business landscape forever.
Corporations have long understood that turning to startups is now a mandatory exercise and a significant component of their innovation arsenal. We can expect to see even more partnerships and collaborations taking place between corporations and startups, as 80% of corporations are interested in knowing more about startups and pursuing a professional relationship with them (source: McKinsey & Co). Corporate venturing, a concept developed in the eighties, is now seeing an unprecedented rise. Novable contributes to this trend.
When it comes to corporate innovation, turning to startups is no longer optional: it has become a business imperative. Startups are the most powerful future prediction engine; they are the crystal ball through which you see your future. Novable helps innovation managers and innovation-related professionals in multiple ways.
Procurement is changing as we speak. New problems require new solutions, and there are thousands of innovators out there that are not listed in traditional supplier databases. Novable is the procurement professionals’ partner for innovation sourcing.
