Innovationedge Partners with InnovationPoint to Bring Disruptive Innovation from Russia to the United States

NEENAH, WI | Posted on November 5th, 2007

Innovationedge and InnovationPoint were awarded a multi-year contract with Russia's International Science and Technology Center (ISTC), based on each company's expansive network of clients and partners at Fortune 50, 100 and 150 companies. As external strategy and innovation consultants, both Innovationedge and InnovationPoint have led marketing and business development activities with companies across diverse industries including Hewlett-Packard, Phillips, Cisco Systems, Inc., Colgate-Palmolive Company, Kimberly-Clark, WD-40, Genentech, PepsiCo and numerous other leading companies.

Russia's International Science and Technology Center provides former weapons scientists and engineers with opportunities to redirect their talents to civilian activities. ISTC grants are awarded on a competitive basis.

"This is exciting news for Innovationedge as we forge new strategic partnerships between Russian inventors and U.S. corporations to deliver commercial success," said Perkins, former chief innovation officer for Kimberly-Clark. "The partnerships we build will span U.S. companies across diverse industries to bring new capabilities, skill sets, operating models and strategies leveraging these externally skilled resources."

Innovationedge, a consultancy based in Wisconsin, is collaborating with InnovationPoint, a consultancy in California, to deliver a competitive advantage to U.S. corporations that see the strategic benefits of tapping into the expertise of Russian innovators. These scientists are highly skilled in biotechnology, agriculture, biomass, healthcare, nanotechnology and bioengineering. Innovationedge and InnovationPoint will formally launch their partnership with ISTC in Moscow this month.

"Through Open Innovation, we can tap into new capabilities that organizations in the United States currently do not possess, at a fraction of the cost. The ISTC Partnership Program provides an enormous competitive boost to U.S. companies and will also benefit the scientific community in Russia," said Soren Kaplan, Managing Partner at InnovationPoint.

Perkins added, "We will design a team-based, collaborative model with ISTC to deliver high-quality results as well as create alignment to ultimately ensure rapid delivery of solutions. The key to success will be to match technology capabilities and innovation strategy to U.S.-based, industry-specific trends and opportunities."
