Our experienced and expert open innovation consultants work with clients to identify where they are in their Open Innovation journey and the right services needed to address their business growth objectives.

yet2 works with companies thinking through many different challenges and questions and helps them identify the next steps for effective execution:

  • Should Open Innovation be a strategic initiative for my company? Where do we start?
  • My internal innovation is not generating the growth we need, could we impact growth through external collaborations?
  • Could going external solve specific product development challenges; quicker, cheaper?
  • We don’t know how to innovate beyond incremental existing to-existing. Where else should we go?
    • Adjacency – what existing technology could give us access to new markets? where do we have existing markets that need new technologies?
    • New white space – where is our future business?
  • Do I want to be publicly seeking new opportunities using our own supplier networks, corporate website or have anonymous brokers working on our behalf?
  • Could going external find new applications and markets for our existing technology?
  • What patents would support my business strategy, how do I identify and acquire them?

yet2 then provide a range of Open Innovation services to enable an organisation to execute successfully against their OI strategy whether for existing, adjacent or new technology and market opportunities.

Our execution methods are high touch, collaborative and interactive enabling iterative refining of the strategic goals and even changing the direction of projects when needed.
