Half the company ideas must come from the outside.

Why Technology Scouting?

  • Scout, identify and acquire disruptive technologies at an early stage to exploit full market potential and avoid future acquisitions at higher valuations.
  • Early acquisitions provide most flexibility in the integration process.
  • Companies can solve technical problems - arising out of even the smallest changes in the competitive landscape - quickly, and gain novel skills without increasing overheads.
  • To keep pace with global innovation, companies should complement in-house Research & Development with external innovation, typically based on a 'build vs buy' analysis.
  • Acquihire, as major technology ecosystems around the world not only have access to innovative technologies but also a strong technical workforce.
  • Accelerate product development cycle by improving process efficiency, reducing risk and even opening access to technology outside the company's realm of expertise.
  • Continuous source of deal flow which ensures the company is in the forefront of innovation and product development.
