Idea.

Our idea is it to build an open innovation ecosystem that will enable and foster cross-industry collaboration and innovation.

Bet.

The Swisscom Kickbox team bets that by the End of 2021, it can create a digital ecosystem that enables cross-company collaboration across industries that involves large organizations, innovation service providers, universities, startups and investors.

Problem.

There is an increasing demand for cross-industry innovation. Access to projects and experts from other organizations happens through personal networks and there is a need for more transparency and enablers, that are able to connect the different organizations in the innovation landscape.

Approach.

Our innovation platform (www.getkickbox.com) acts as enabler for open innovation by making projects and experts visible and by enabling collaboration across organizations. The on-boarding of a critical mass of large corporations on our digital platform in combination with a trusted peer community will enable collaboration across industries. Further, on-boarding of universities allows new forms of public-private collaboration and the inclusion of startups and investors will create a 360 degree open innovation ecosystem.

Impact.

We bet by December 2021, at least 10 cross-industry projects were funded through our open innovation ecosystem and expertise and best practices are shared through the community on the www.getkickbox.com platform.
