Co-Creating Brings Customers, Clients, And Partners Together To Innovate Around A Common Opportunity Area Or Business Need.
Co-creating acceleration focuses on identifying corporate business needs that can be matched with entrepreneurial solutions significantly increasing the probability of innovation success for all involved. In this regard, a group of corporate stakeholders (i.e. like clients, partners, business units, or other corporates) are organized into a cohort where business needs are identified and refined into innovation challenges. The innovation challenges are then rapidly scouted in the tech community to access knowledge, talent, and technical solutions from startups and researchers. The process repeats as new business needs are identified.
