The Innovation Exchange has been hugely positive for Glanbia, bringing value with every step of the process. It has given us exposure to lots of different companies, innovating in lots of different ways that can help Glanbia accelerate at speed
The Innovation Exchange is a fantastic programme that helps small, early-stage companies with ‘warm introductions’ to large enterprises that are pre-disposed to working with startups and potentially interested in the innovations they offer. The programme helped us to meet senior people in leading Irish and Global enterprises, produced tangible leads for us to pursue and was efficiently and professionally run by the team at Furthr throughout. We’d happily repeat the process!
AerNua received huge value from the Innovation Exchange Programme. We worked with an excellent event coordinator, we were provided with the opportunity to pitch to multinational key decision makers, and permitted to attend very informative training events where our questions were heard, and valuable answers and direction received. We received both financial and moral support as we began this long journey as a start-up company. The Innovation Exchange put us in contact with the necessary resources which we required to address our weaknesses and to develop opportunities.
AerNua hopes to continue this new relationship we have established with the Innovation Exchange programme and Furthr.
Innovation Exchange is a great initiative from Furthr. It enables early and mid-stage start-up get in front of targeted bigger players in the market and build a potentially long-term collaboration. It is probably The Ideal . It is hugely beneficial for Empeal having been able to present to potential collaborators – hopefully something will come out of it in the long run.
As a startup, being part of the Innovation Exchange has accelerated our potential to partner with world-renowned brands. This adds huge value to us at this stage and into the future. The opportunity to listen to business leaders and hear the problems they wish to solve also makes collaboration a much more time-efficient process.
