Corporate Innovation

In today’s increasingly fast-paced environment, organizations need to manage innovation agilely in order to seize opportunities for competitive advantages as they arise.

IE works with you to design and develop the next innovation for your organization, bringing to bear our global capabilities, the deep and diverse knowledge of our academic experts, and the enormous potential of the entrepreneurs that make up our ecosystem.

As an extension of your in-house innovation capabilities, IE can help give your organization its next competitive edge.

An Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

Unlike other innovation models, our global, diverse, and entrepreneurial ecosystem promotes the agile design, development, and implementation of solutions to produce results in the shortest time possible.

To achieve this, we take a startup approach to corporate innovation.

The technologies we use support this philosophy, enabling innovations to be quickly transferred to today’s increasingly demanding and changing market.
