We evaluate and shortlist the best talents and high-potential assets within your company, and run relevant workshops to provide your senior stakeholders with a hands-on link to potential opportunities from within your organization and local ecosystem.

We work closely with your organisation to identify areas of interest for external innovation. Subsequently, we build intake themes around these areas and we focus on developing and/or supporting founding teams that have the potential to create and/or develop novel science ventures in those areas.
