What is Technology Scouting?
If all great companies are powered by great technologies, why are so many great technologies still waiting to be discovered? This paradox is the essence of technology scouting, a discipline for successful corporations that understand the need to constantly pursue innovation.
Breakthrough technologies are often born inside startups but the entrepreneur community is only the beginning. In fact, new ideas are constantly being developed and tested in a wide range of settings, from industry think tanks to venture capital firms and university laboratories. The corporations that learn how to scout for new technologies across all of these fields inoculate themselves against startup-led industry disruption and open the pathway toward survival and long-term business growth.
