Access2innovation provides a powerful link between the Third World Market, NGOs, universities and the world of commerce.
The partners come together to work out solutions to concrete problems in the developing world and allow business partners to access vast new markets with sustainable products that are in demand.
Now, it would seem like a simple idea for civil society organisations, businesses, public institutions and universities to join together to work out the best and most cost-efficient solutions to problems in the developing world.
The civil society organisations have got years of experience from working in developing countries, universities holds state-of the-art knowledge and commercial companies have a strong focus on research and production. Combined, this powerful cocktail can provide innovative solutions to people in need - while doing good business at the same time.Despite the simplicity of the basic idea, only a limited number of partnerships exist. This is mainly due to the lack of knowledge at universities and in private sectors about needs and possibilities in the third world and due to the tendency for civil society organizations to keep commercial interests at an arm’s length.
This means that those who need it the most are kept away from the innovative process. The gap between the rich and poor of this world is widening.
We are here to change that.
Access2innovation has proven itself as a cutting edge platform for new partnerships. So far, these partnerships have created groundbreaking new solutions based on high-tech knowledge, experience and best practice, which – combined with local knowledge and insight – have solved previously insurmountable challenges in daily life.
