AVIA

Truly sustainable & transformational  innovation hubs, that help build innovation ecosystems, require stakeholder alignment & vertical integration

AVIA addresses and resolves the following constraints of many traditional innovation hubs, accelerators and incubators:

1. Unsustainable: innovation hubs, accelerators and labs are too often established without the requirement for compelling and sustainable long term commercial, strategic and financial returns and therefore not last long enough to build a sustainable virtuous cycle of innovation and success.

2. Misaligned with key stakeholders: government organisations and university / research institutes are important catalysts and stakeholders in establishing innovation ecosystems but the long term success of innovation hubs requires commercial (financial and strategic) alignment with other key stakeholders including corporations, industry bodies, institutional and private investors.

3. Not vertically integrated: generally, innovation hubs provide defined programs for specific stages of a venture's existence without ongoing post-program support or follow-on investment. 

 

4. Model is "Push" not "Pull": Innovation hub selection criteria are often driven by opportunistic push-model supply and not complemented by pull-model demand.

"There's a way to do it better - find it"
