By nurturing open innovation ecosystems, we get companies of all shapes and sizes to work together on use-cases that tackle societal topics.
The challenges our society and its citizens face today are too complex for just one company to solve. An innovation ecosystem stimulates knowledge sharing, boost innovation and can result in marketable solutions.
The way an ecosystem works goes as follows:
invest in the ecosystem. In return, they determine its objective and thematics on which it will work,
(Corporates, startups, and incubators) in the ecosystem collaborate during the ideation and prototyping phase on the use-cases,
provide the ecosystem with knowledge, technology, infrastructure or other resources,
Investors and subsides
provide the ecosystem with extra funds.
3 Formats of multi-party innovation
Based on our unique methodology.
Thematic ∙ Ecosystem
Co.Station brings together different actors within an ecosystem-based on societal thematics (food, building, mobility,…). All participants, recruited by Co.Station, are positioned at different places in the value chain. The main goal of the Thematic Ecosystems is to aim for a lasting impact for a large part of society.
Company ∙ Ecosystem
When the need and innovation pain of the organization is very specific, or when the company wants to be at the centre of a specific ecosystem (Teclos, Banks, Airports,…), Co.Station recommends the Company Ecosystem. Co.Station will operate as the neutral operator and facilitator for a certain number of recommended or proposed Active Members, in order to solve the company’s predefined innovation challenges.
Peers ∙ Ecosystem
The Peers Ecosystem is the perfect multi-party innovation solution when a particular consortium of companies (pre-aligned or not) wants to collaborate together; wanting to create or accelerate a common project (eg. corporates investing in a startup); or align internationally with peers on a common engagement (eg. water preservation in Europe).
Our signature methodlogy guides the entire ecosystem throughout 4 different phases:
Step 1 | Ideation
Step 2 | Prototyping
Step 3 | Demonstration
Step 4 | Implementation
By nurturing open innovation ecosystems, we get companies of all sizes to work together on complex business & societal topics. It stimulates knowledge sharing, boost innovation & can result in marketable solutions.
Where ideas become prototypes.
