The Innovation 101 series of articles presents specific activities and practices to achieve innovation. I chose these activities because I believe they are a great place to start. They are not the end all be all, nor are they “right”. They are simply practicable. If you do them you will notice an improvement in your ability to innovate.
Alan, is an entrepreneur. He has a great innovation that could just be the next “Big Thing” to take the world by storm. Alan needs to launch the innovation quickly to as many major clients as possible before someone else steals his idea.
So, Alan posts a project on INNOVO setting out the major target clients and markets that he wants to sell to. INNOVO’s sector specific experts will then guide Alan on the commercial road to success for his innovation.
If Alan’s idea has commercial legs, INNOVO will introduce the innovation to target prospects, generate new clients and gain entry to key markets. INNOVO only earns from a share of the new sales that they actually create. That’s right; all this is free for Alan, who only pays commission when his invention produces income.
Sounds like a great idea to get innovation moving?
