The Reversed Incubator is an innovative methodological approach aiming at inverting the logic with which we transform ideas into businesses and companies. It combines training with business opportunities in food-related sectors with concrete ideas for the future to generate innovation.
The Reversed Incubator boosts innovation by inverting the traditional business logic.
The design and development of new business opportunities (e.g. start-up, enterprise, company, …) begins from the needs/opportunities of innovation expressed by existing enterprises. These innovation needs (or challenges) are then developed into ideas by talents under the supervision of mentors within a business-oriented training (using the “FORTH methodology”) and co-creation project development framework. The Reversed Incubator promotes the creation of new business ideas by combining different actors and in particular, companies, talents and mentors. Aims of the Reversed Incubator include the improvement of entrepreneurial and professional-oriented skills of the talents by practicing them during project development.
In the following pages the steps of the Reversed Incubator will be described and complemented with useful template documents which are available for download upon registration and request to the ASKFOOD board.
