Beaz, in collaboration with BCAM – Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics, through its Knowledge Transfer Unit (KTU), is setting up this service that consists of making advice available to SMEs and start-ups in Bizkaia to identify opportunities to improve processes, to optimise designs, advice on new computing tools, or even definition of new services or products as a result of processing and exploiting data that such SMEs and start-ups record.
PIP allows companies to develop innovations and to test them in real environments, bringing the public administrations new solutions for their needs that could not be satisfied otherwise, and encouraging innovation and development of high added value markets.
The Provincial Council of Bizkaia has signed an agreement with Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) and Masschallenge of Boston startup accelerators that will connect entrepreneurs and local startups with markets, networks and investors of the global innovation network.
The objective of this service is to analyse the variables that affect the economic-financial situation of the company and to detect opportunities for improvement, in terms of cashflow, liquidity, costs, financing strategies, reports and management indicators.
The possibilities that external ideas may bring to a company’s innovation process mean that more and more open innovation initiatives are promoted. Throughout 2017 Beaz has taken part in several activities that have had in common the collaboration between organisations of different sectors, size, maturity and origin. We are facing a relationship-based innovation, in which the key aspect to move forward safely and quickly and to make good progresses is the willingness to be a part of the project, and not the whole.
