companies with the most open innovation

What is open innovation?


Open innovation refers to an approach in which companies specialized in outsourced product development services don’t rely only in the internal engineering time for developing hardware and software, but also, open innovation encourages collaboration with third parties outside the organization.

The approach used by companies with open innovation ensures that a problem or need can be solved faster with the help of research and development teams in universities, innovation groups, alliances with other companies, among others.

Open innovation companies don’t worry about sharing information and knowledge, because they know this integration will lead to greater results in terms of design and development of new products or devices.

DeepSea Developments has achieved great success by establishing alliances for the development of certain IoT projects, that’s one of the main reasons we keep growing in the best practices for innovation, prototyping, and hardware and software development.

Open innovation recognition


The first list of open innovation in Colombia was released, which brings together large corporations and startups.

The list was made by the 100 Open Startups platform, together with Connect Bogotá, and was presented at the Open Innovation Summit that takes place between Wednesday and Thursday in Bogotá.

The importance of this ranking is that the level of relationship of large companies with entrepreneurs stands out, with the aim of raising awareness of collaborative work to achieve better results in terms of innovation.

Among the outstanding companies, Compensar has the first place and Corona Industrial is in second place. Then, in their order, among the top 10 are the following organizations: Grupo Éxito, Movistar, Enel Colombia, Alianza Team, EL TIEMPO Casa Editorial, Grupo Familia, Grupo Bolívar, and Natura.

As for startups, the first 10 are Insttantt (Bogotá), Oncredit (Manizales), Uptime Analytics (Bogotá), Superlikers (Bogotá), Audioenlace Producciones SAS (Bogotá), DeepSea Developments (Cali), Guane Enterptises (Envigado ), Datup SAS (Bogotá), Apping (Bogotá) and Vecindario (Medellín).

The award of the list of open innovation in Colombia was presented in a panel in which participated: Bruno Rondani, founder and CEO of 100 Open Startups; Diana Gaviria, director of Connect Bogotá, and Andrés Mompotes, director of the newspaper EL TIEMPO.

Through the 100 Open Startups platform, both companies and entrepreneurs presented the relationships they have had to advance in innovation. In that exercise, the scoring system was defined for both parties.

In this first version of the list, 188 startups and a hundred companies were registered. More than 900 relationships were declared and the intensity of open innovation exceeded 1,700 points.

The majority of relationships, 32.41%, had to do with the supply of innovative products or services.

Those that have to do with “matchmaking” and connections followed, with 30.75%. This has to do with programs that seek to offer entrepreneurs access to connections with the corporate market.

At a lower level were the relationships around the contracting of a pilot project (15.79%), access to the customer base and sales channels (4.16%), and resources for R&D and prototyping.
