Innovation is not a matter of coincidence. It follows a defined plan. Ours is divided into three successive phases: Ideation, Incubation, Commercialization.
Every innovation process starts with an idea. After it has been validated in-house, it is forwarded to the “shark tank” — an expert panel that decides on how to proceed.
The selected ideas are tested for feasibility and scalability by our team of innovative minds. In co-creation, they develop new prototypes and set up compelling pilot projects.
Projects that have proven to be resilient and viable are commercialized. In this final step, ventures are built and our fledgling products or services are rolled out into the global market.
