Innovation initiatives have developed and popped out everywhere over the last 10 years. Yet we need them to have more success and more impact. In order to improve the lives and well- being of people everywhere, in order to solve the magnitude of the climate change challenge, we need to focus our resources. In essence, more cooperation is needed that matches innovation skills, market development activities, customers, private and public end-user demands to develop relevant solutions.
Cleantech Scandinavia together with the global energy utility company Électricité de France (EDF) and other founders and partners, have initiated a new process, the Impact Venture Builder: This new end-to-end innovation process is opened to various types of actors and covers the whole innovation journey, from ideation to market growth.
We join forces with our network of universities, innovation hubs, cities, industry actors and investors to optimize each step of the innovation journey and bring smart products and services to the market in a faster, more efficient and successful way. First we collect ideas, then experts (all founders, such as energy companies, real estate actors, cities, other industrial actors etc.) assess their value and pick the best ones, and finally we match the chosen ideas with talents to build diverse start-up teams that develop them further with our support.
