For a business to survive, it must innovate. Nothing new in this statement. If it does it alone, it will sometimes be a long and difficult journey, which can result in a result sometimes obsolete once the solution is put on the market. On the other hand, if it innovates in collaboration with other companies and actors, having the same challenge of innovation, it can accelerate the process of innovation, adoption of an innovative mindset for the members of the company, and to tickle the curiosity and creativity necessary for everyone to innovate!
