Maritime Solutions for Startup-Driven Innovation

We know how difficult it can be for a traditional industry look into startups and learn how to engage with them. Until recently in Maritime this was not particularly relevant, but in the last few years a revolution has come about and the importance of engaging with startups for startup-driven innovation in Martitime has become apparent.

To help forward-looking Maritime CEOs take their companies in the uncharted waters of startup-driven innovation we have developed a series of services to assist them in 3 essential stages of development of a startup-driven innovation strategy for their companies

Partner

If until a few years ago the “do nothing” strategy was a feasible optioon, nowadays it is becoming riskier and riskier NOT to take action and remain out of the startup-driven innovation loop. So more and more Maritime business people are looking into the completely alien world of startps and startup-driven innovation.

A lot of questions arise in the mind of someone who has never worked with innovators, or even worse, with external innovators like startups. Most of the questions are about HOW. How to find startups, how to engage with startups, how to make sure we don’t loose the boat by working with startups, and so on.

But the most important questions should be WHY should we work with startups in the first place and WHAT objectives we can realistically achieve.

A Maritime CEO can find several solution on the market to address the HOW questions, but which will be the right one? We want to go beyond these and offer Maritime CEOs and their Companies support in the entire process from understanding the WHY to defining the WHAT and inplementing the HOW.
