    Founder and CEO

    It is easier to innovate when not having your nose to the grindstone, but you cannot manage your company the nose in the wind either!
    Compromise is: you continue your routine and we tell you when it is interesting to look up.

    Therefore, we propose:
     
    - To stimulate innovative projects, open new paths:
    • Diagnosis and possible developments to gradually integrate innovation process
    • Animation of working groups, creative sessions, functional and value analysis sessions (multi-disciplinary, multi-actor)
    • Training (creativity tools, ideas formalization and validation, innovation management)
    • Identification of ways to integrate an "open innovation" strategy in line with the company's vision.
    - Assist you in the strategic and operational management of innovation:
    • Project audit and development strategy, according to their nature and the company's vision
    • Implementation of a technological and competitive intelligence 
    • Strategy of diversification or differentiation (products/services)
    • Innovation marketing, market research, business plan
    • Industrial property strategy and IP development 
    • "Outsourcing" of innovation with a timeshare engineer to conduct a coherent innovation policy (watch, proposal, implementation, project management, etc.) 
    - Identification and negotiation of partnerships (R&D, industrial or commercial): communication, validation of interest with market experts, potential licensees identification, assistance in negotiations, support to contracting and transfer, monitoring contracts and their implementation

    - For entrepreneurs & startups: IP strategy, assistance in business plan writing and validation, preparation for finding investors, associates, commercial or industrial partners research
     
    - Financial valuation of patents, softwares, web & mobile applications, for capital contribution, due diligence, equity, transfer or assignment.
