“Corporates have the means and experience to drive innovation, but sometimes lack the inspiration or agility to swiftly follow new trends in society or marketplace. Young entrepreneurs might miss experience or means but they are very much in touch with what’s happening in technology and society. That is where we see the greatest success of Co.Station. The Young and the Restless can meet up with the Proven and the Established and learn from each other. Together they will develop ideas into new solutions and come up with products or services for existing as well as new markets.” Wouter Remaut, CEO Co.Station For the occasion of the launch of Omar Mohout’s new book – “NUMERI – From idea to Product/Market Fit” -, we are organizing our first Co.Station Crossroads Summit. A unique event to discuss Digital Innovation and Corporate Venturing, gathering some of the most relevant actors in the Belgian ecosystem.
