INCworX

Ideas are ten a penny. Only choice and implementation of the right idea save your sustainability.

Just 10 percent of all ideas got the potential to open new business areas and obtain disruptive changes by using new competences, so markets get whirled up and the competition is turned upside down. Such innovation plans often represent a high financial risk. The X in INCworX stands for this 10 percent of ideas, which can be conceived on the Invention Centers’ area and be transformed in marketable products, services and business models.

What is INCworX about?

INCworX supports the futures manager in multiple ways by accelerating innovation projects and minimizing the financial risk:

  • Free thinking and experimentation in a protected surrounding
  • Ideas can be manifested in a prototype very quickly, so it gets more tangible
  • Ideas can be assessed based on relevant and quickly available information
  • Sound decisions get prepared

Breakthrough ideas are not arising in a vacuum: Inventions and discoveries need stimuli, that thrill, rouse and can’t be forgotten. The impetus often comes from a side you wouldn’t expect. That’s why it is so important to allow interaction and diversity, create flexibility and freedom, to try something new.

INCworX gives you the opportunity for a vivid exchange between researchers and discoverers, test candidates and target groups, like-minded people and sparring partners of varied disciplines. Exciting information about the latest trends and modern workshop-concepts also fuel and support new approaches.
