3. Innovation workshop
4. Test phase
You support the teams in the further development of the selected solutions, allotting time, human resources and funding for the activities in the target country (e.g. for feasibility studies, user tests, field research, etc.)
5. Pilot phase
If the business idea meets your demands during the test phase, you then support the design team in launching the business model in the target country, to obtain proof of its viability (‘proof of concept’).
The aim of the lab of tomorrow is to help companies develop investible shared value business models. At this stage the proof of concept exists, and companies are able to access the required resources to operate.
