Description

Their platform is an innovation tool for internal use within large organizations. It enables you to quickly check a) which of your group members are relevant in relation to specific topics, b) who is available or interested to engage with you now, and c) set up a first discussion - all in one step. You send out your topic and the most relevant members can click to set up a discussion time with you. Team: One of the co-founders holds a PhD from The Royal Institute of Technology, is a physicist and artificial intelligence expert. The other co-founder holds a degree from Stanford University and has more than ten years' experience in organizational management and was selected as a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. Their lead developer, based in Canada, is a former senior software engineer at Amazon. The tool is a simple search form accessible from the web. The only data you need is your group members´ emails - no additional data or downloads. According to a 2016 Deloitte study, "in every organization, people build informal 'go-to' teams. They rely on that one person who always knows 'how we do things here.' They find someone in finance who can answer any budget question. These spontaneous, critically important connections are the lifeblood of organizations worldwide." But in large organizations, it is hard to keep track of people and what they know. 70% of users think it takes too much time to ask around. The tool offers an efficient solution for this. Today one of Sweden's most well respected applied research institutes uses this system in order to more efficiently run open innovation projects and quickly find the right team for a specific enquiry. Their current customers estimate that every find the expert finder does is worth an average USD 2,000, plus the ability to retain project commissions worth up to several million thanks to locating the right expert. The Swedish startup is now looking for commercial partners, as research and development networks and other knowledge intensive organisations, larger than 100 employees/members on a global basis who would like to test their product and benefit from the technology under license and/or commercial agreement with technical assistance.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
