Existing programs for innovation are either outdated or slow. Most corporations find it hard to seek the right technology, skillset, and resources to speed up their existing innovation programs. Zinnov’s Innovation practice speeds up the search for these transactive opportunities by custom designing start-up collaboration programs and engaging with relevant high potential start-ups to drive meaningful business impact.  

Our innovation maturity framework helps customers diagnose their existing innovation activities and design roadmaps to move along the maturity curve. Our deep focus on aligning key internal stakeholders with external collaborators help in joint goal setting and driving tangible outcomes for both customers and partners.
