CHALLENGE: How to Improve Product Development from Concept to MVP
Support Ageas Innovation Hub by promoting innovation with a unique approach.
The proposed model has three main building blocks for different purposes:
The Ageas Innovation Hub will be a complete ecosystem where insights can be sourced, and new concepts can be generated, prototyped, and implemented. This approach allows students to be part of the product's full development cycle from the creation of a concept to its launch and execution or creation of their own business in partnership with Ageas.
The Product Startup Studios consist of intensive innovation implementation programs aimed at creating a temporary Startup Team outside the corporate world to co-develop and bring to life a new product or service, adopting the methodologies, culture, and the mindset of an early-stage startup.
The goal of the Go-to-Market Startup Studio is to enable AGEAS to have a faster and leaner product/solution development, bringing a new product or service to market earlier, while mitigating the risk and promoting new methodologies, frameworks and culture.
CHALLENGE: How to Promote Digital Transformation Improving Innovation and Creating New Concepts
The Co-Creation Santander Living Lab is a structural innovation program. It consists of setting-up a mixed innovation team (Santander staff with Nova SBE students and faculty) to co-discover, co-create, and co-validate new concepts using Nova SBE’s ecosystem as an innovation sandbox.
This unique framework allows constant iteration and testing in the controlled environment of the Living Lab, enabling fast prototyping, reliable validation, and immediate feedback incorporation early-on.
CHALLENGE: How to Create Complementary Businesses
Nestlé Start and Co. is an Open Innovation Program promoted by Nestlé Portugal in partnership with Nova School of Business & Economics. The Programme aims to identify not only the best external startups but also to structure the adaptation and integration process for Nestlé.
Startups that can demonstrate the value of their solution to Nestlé, and that can make a significant contribution, will have the opportunity to present and apply their projects to a leading client and a powerful brand. Nestlé will be the early adopter of their innovative solutions (products, services, or technology), enabling the opportunity to co-create and co-develop a complementary business directly with the brand.
