Is composed in two stages. First comes the Scout & Match and after this, if a company decided to have a tailored recommendation of the best fit startup, WiderPool offers the Tailored Program.
Our Open Innovation Program starts with identifying “pain points” of the Energy companies participants of the program. From that, we will identify the focus areas to be addressed and prioritize the innovation challenges & new growth opportunities and correlated technological verticals & solutions that will guide the scouting of the startups.
We will Scout, promote and connect with relevant innovative early-and-growth stage startups, collecting essential data from them. We will address highly recommended startups By leveraging our global partnerships with key Innovation Hubs and the 80+ Advisory Board members (C-Level Executives).
After the scouting, we conduct an initial analysis from the collected applications to pre-select the best energy startups that have a fit with the defined focus areas.
We will further advance in the analysis of the deal-flow by applying our internal methodology followed by a due-diligence of the 10 finalists conducted together with our experts (C-Level executives) in the Energy market and specific technological verticals to provide a recommendation of the 3 selected finalists per focus area.
The 3 finalists will be presented in a pitch day with the winners and the executive team of the corporate. An initial commercial proposal & term sheet will be prepared from the winners’ side to plan a negotiation, integration & investment.
