SUNN, the first innovation discovery engine


  • 1.The first innovation discovery engine

2. What is SUNN? SUNN is a process of discovering competitive innovation; it is also a matching system and a collaborative workflow between all the agents of an innovation system: R&D Groups, StartUps, Enterprises and Venture Capital Funds. As a process, SUNN can connect industrial capabilities with the most exciting emerging technologies in the world. Technologies that traditional databases, email, personal contacts and business intelligence tools often fail to discover. It will open up a world of possibilities to raise your competitive advantage like nothing else can. SUNN is based on Innovation, grouped into five Ecosystems, where the core competences of industries, innovation demands, and disruptive key technologies interact in real time. Nowadays there are various resources related to the connection of the different agents operating in the innovation system, but they are currently fragmented and inefficiently distributed. The connection between innovation demand and supply is complex, lengthy and costly for the agents involved. On the one hand, there are large industrial corporations that need to integrate innovations into their production processes as a clear strategy for international competitiveness. On the other hand, there is a large concentration of innovators looking to continue growing their profits. SUNN is created under these premises as the first innovation discovery engine. SUNN (StartUp Neural Network) meets the following objectives: To discover innovation based on current industrial capabilities and access to worldwide ecosystems of emerging technologies. To connect the innovation need of each ecosystem agent: Startups, Enterprises, Research Groups and Venture Capital Funds. To launch cooperation workflows (investment, research collaboration, commercialization or technology vigilance) directly with startups or sources of innovation in the international markets. To let the world watch you, transmitting innovation signals through the implementation of Innosensors and discover the power of the open innovation strategies. In an increasingly competitive market, to discover the sources of breakthrough innovation is a real competitive advantage, and the only way to compete in local or global markets. 3.
