Corporate innovation partnerships
With the ever accelerating pace of technological progress, it becomes increasingly difficult for larger corporations to keep up with innovations. Grey regulatory areas, traditionally too risky/difficult for conservative companies to operate in, slow and bureaucratic internal processes, operations and staff motivation optimized for the core KPIs make innovation hard to systematically implement internally. Nextury is a natural corporate innovations partner, connecting startup communities and capital with corporate innovation needs.
