Open innovation and ecosystem building, in addition to other forms of innovation, can be a tremendous driver for regional and international prosperity in both the short and the long run. The facilitation of innovation depends at least to some extent on the policy framework in which it resides, so please check out and contribute to the available information on this website.
Public policy can have a major influence on the facilitation of open innovation and ecosystem development. In addition, OI principles can be of great importance to entrepreneurial regional economies. Exnovate aims to connect community members with governments on OI and ecosystem related topics to assist these policy makers in designing the appropriate guidelines or to help communicate interesting initiatives.

Most companies have a difficult time in deciding on which consultants or service providers to choose to assist in planning and implementing an Open and Collaborative innovation (OCI) strategy. Exnovate intends to play a role in matching up these companies and OCI vendors.The main target is to increase transparency and to guarantee the quality of the solutions or services provided. There are different ways to achieve these objectives. Exnovate is currently exploring some initiatives to reach this target by. There is an advantage to all parties involved in this process: firms have lower search cost and improved service quality and best practices on the Exnovate website can dramatically raise the level of exposure for high quality service providers. Wat can you expect from Exnovate: A. Requests to solve OCI related management problems. We welcome service providers with expertise in management of OCI to join the Exnovate network.

Exnovate can be the ideal virtual platform to set up online surveys about OCI management.

We welcome other ideas from service providers where the neutrality and platform function of Exnovate can play a significant role in advancing our knowledge about the management en organization of OCI.
Venture capitalists have played a crucial role in the development of open innovation. This said there are still enormous inefficiencies in the development of technology markets. Exnovate wants to be active during the following years in developing new ways to monetize the largely untapped patent repositiories in big companies. Venture capital companies can play a crucial role in and benefit from bringing these technologies to the market
Exnovate does not offer first line advice. The success of open innovation generated a fast growing market for all kinds consulting and service firms. Identification of the right providers is difficult and a standard for the service quality is non-existent. This is where Exnovate can play a role.
