Innovation strategy is very personal. Whether a company is a leader, a fast follower, or behind the curve has a lot to do with their innovation strategy and corporate culture. For companies on the defensive, it is more important not to miss trends and technologies; for companies on the offense the priority is often to push their industry into the future.

Kerton Group has helped dozens of industry incumbents across this spectrum build and implement their Innovation Strategy - from defining programs, scouting technologies, introducing investable startups, researching innovation priorities and analyzing success.   

Projects can include:

  • Innovation Scouting: For companies that need boots on the ground in Silicon Valley
  • Innovation Pipeline: Regular research on relevant technologies and startups
  • Due Diligence: Analysis on the market and competitive position of future startup partners.
  • Program Setup & Analysis: Reviews and recommendations for internal and external innovation processes.
  • Innovation Program Management: including contests, hackathons, demo day, and executive briefing sessions.
