SOSA’s Corporate Open Innovation Program

SOSA’s Corporate Open Innovation Program

Are you searching for technologies that will open new opportunities for the future of your organization?

Tap into the Startup-Nation’s Leading Technology Companies with the Guidance of Veteran Experts in the Israeli Tech Ecosystem

Sosa’s Corporate Open Innovation Program offers the best of both worlds: harnessing the size and processes of larger corporations, with the nimble and innovative approaches of successful startups.
Sosa’s veteran tech leaders have built a unique and structured in-house process that guarantees corporate innovation teams successful matching and cooperation with overseas startups.

A unique program that enables corporate innovation teams and startups to meet and accelerate new joint projects.

Innovation Strategy Overview

SOSA’s first mission is to provide Clarity to our Corporate Partners’, your organization, challenges, pain points and goals. We work closely with our Corporate Partners to map their pain points, current challenges,  anticipating future needs, and align them with your Corporate Partners’ core strategic vision. We review the Corporate Partners’ entire innovation strategy plan, set achievable goals and KPI’s.

Startup Scouting

We screen and analyze the market for relevant technology companies and match the best tech solutions to our Corporate Partners’ needs and requirements, in a structured deal flow process. SOSA will provide a Company Recommendation List (CRL) of candidate startups not later than 6 weeks after the launch of the collaboration; the list is usually comprised of 12-20 startups (depending on the specific vertical/industry) that SOSA sees as a good fit for the organization.

Deal Flow Support

SOSA’s partnering goes beyond scouting. SOSA is committed to guiding its Corporate Partners through the entire Deal Flow Process, starting at introducing Corporate Partners to relevant startups based on their specific vertical and industry, to specialized demo days hosted at our well-appointed facilities in Tel Aviv and New York, to guidance through the engagement and project development or investment stages.

Brand Recognition

SOSA will work with the Corporate Partner to showcase their offering, visions, and opportunities within the start-up ecosystem, promoting their innovation activity and supporting their brand positioning as key players in the ecosystem. In addition to curating the events, our Corporate Partners become members of SOSA and will receive invitations to participate in content events, meetups, roundtables, panel sessions, and more. In addition, they will be invited to relevant industry events in Israel and NYC with the mission of recognition as thought-leaders in the innovation industry.

Innovation Training

SOSA continues to spread disruptive business values to its corporate partners, through the unique format of innovation bootcamps. In different locations worldwide, from Tel Aviv to Europe and New York, we are developing new value propositions in global industries, such as Insurance, Supply Chain & Logistics, Finance and Energy.

We ensure that our corporate partners are positioned at the top of innovative thinking, by leading their teams through 4 intense days of R&D using the Design Thinking Toolbox, together with the injection of technological solutions and external expertise.

Our tailor-made bootcamps offer a unique combination of a human-centric approach together with the latest cutting edge technologies available.

By the end of the innovative week, 20-50 executives participating in the program deliver their top management with their validated prototypes, supported by a business model to ensure practical deployment and implementation of an MVP.

Industrial AI

With the increased efficiency that Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies can provide, implementation of these technologies has a huge effect on industrial sectors.

In industrial settings, AI is a powerful tool for predictive maintenance, helping owners plan for breakdowns in machinery, minimize waste, improve overall optimization of production, and strengthen the cyber security of IT and OT systems. That’s because AI technology has the ability to recognize image and sound patterns, for example, and respond quickly and intelligently to situations that arise.

In virtually all factories, poor demand forecasting and capacity planning, unexpected equipment failures and downtimes, supply chain bottlenecks, and inefficient or unsafe workplace processes can lead to resource wastage, longer production periods, low yields on production inputs, and lost revenue. Industrial AI is addressing all of these problems and several forward-thinking manufacturers are already relying on AI to tackle these issues.

Cyber Security

The need for strong protection against cyber-attacks has never been greater, as the complexity and cost of cyber-crime damage keeps increasing every year. This space is seeing frequent and profitable M&A deals, equally attracting the attention of both investors and entrepreneurs.

Israel attracts 15% of the global investment in cyber security, considered as one of the strongest cyber-security clusters globally, with top talent being produced at the intelligence units of the IDF.

New York City is the financial capital of the United States and has the largest customers in financial services in the Western World. While this marks New York as the prime target of cyber attacks, many stakeholders, including the city’s municipality, are pushing to make it into the cyber security leader, respectfully to the value in stake.
