About us


"Companies recognize the importance of partnering for futures revenues, but they face a common challenge: though they build strategies centered on external innovations and collaborations they are doing so with organization built to bring internally developed products and services to market." Kelsey Glatz and David Chapnick from Vantage Partners, How good at partnering are we?

Team & Expertise

Our complementarity is our #1 asset.
The 3 co-founders, Santi Porta, Carsten Blau and Sebastien Charles put together their capabilities in software development, product design, innovation and partnership management to develop a unique solution.In addition to the 3 different cultural (German, French, Spanish) and experience backgrounds of the founders, they are supported by a highly international team (8 nationalities from 4 different continents) as well as an Expert & Scientific Committee. The later help them to validate the assumption ad the solution market/fit.

"In my career as an Innovation Manager, I was involved in many partnerships, so I know the success stories as well as the failures. Partnership Management is a rather uncommon business. The digitalization quickens up processes if you know the existing challenge in the practical field."
