The pressure on large organizations to come up with new innovative opportunities is stronger than ever. Yet many corporates still struggle to find the tools, methodologies, and practices needed to be more agile and search for scalable innovations resulting in new growth opportunities. The Aalto ENT Co-creation Platform enables its clients to connect with the best-fit hand-picked startups to promote genuine collaboration and explore clear joint innovative business opportunities.

Exploring Radical Opportunities

The Aalto ENT Co-creation Platform offers large corporates a custom-fit experiential program that “throws participants in the deep end” of entrepreneurship, agility, and innovation.

The collaboration between the corporation and the startup is designed to explore new business potential or focus on trends and phenomena challenging current markets, such as digitalization, sustainability, circular economy, demographic change, or platform economy. The startup cases are selected according to the company's specific strategy or where it sees a future business-upside potential.

The Aalto ENT Co-creation Platform is not a traditional training program. The impact of the hands-on solution comes from a systematic process of nurturing an idea to a scalable business case through a continuous loop of testing and iteration. The guided process enables you to truly accelerate your innovation and halve the time spent on creating a proof of concept.
