For the fifth year running, startups have been asked to nominate the most active corporates in open innovation, this time at global level, thanks to the partnership between Mind the Bridge and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). In total, 50 companies from all over the world have been awarded: 25 as Corporate Startup Stars - with Mastercard (first), Bosch Group (second) and BP (third) securing the podium - and 25 companies named Open Innovation Challengers.
According to the very last Report issued by Mind the Bridge and Acciona “Tech Scaleup Spain 2020”, Spanish tech scaleup ecosystem shouldn’t be seeing its growth trend reverted by Covid-19. The country should close the year slightly below the 1 billion mark in new funding and with about 40 new scaleups.
In this age of AI, it is amazing to see the variety of products and services that startups are delivering to different industries. As part of our advisory activities at Mind the Bridge, we are continuously looking for the most innovative startups around the world that fit the verticals we focus on. This shortlist focuses on North American startups that according to us are worthy to be tracked.
Per le aziende italiane è arrivato il momento di accelerare in maniera significativa, adottando approcci di open innovation più ambiziosi con una visione meno locale e più internazionale. Questo il messaggio principale contenuto nel nuovo Report “Open Innovation Outlook Italy 2021” realizzato da Mind the Bridge con il supporto di SMAU.
