Leaders, it is time to stop the dynamics of the water crisis by using collective innovation. 

The gap between global water supply and demand is projected to reach 40% by 2030 if current practices continue.

Good news, there are plenty of solutions. However their impact will remain limited without a collective and systemic approach. Otherwise the impact of all these aislated solutions will remain limited. Facing the dynamics of the water crisis implies opening up water markets and co-creating. It raises major issues to scale, to make accessible and interoperable the panel of solutions. 

Impactful digital platforms, the companies of the future, have demonstrated that they are capable of :

  • generating new sustainable revenues,
  • streamlining the economic, social and/or technological ecosystem,
  • ensuring the scaling of solutions and therefore of impact,
  • improving value chains,
  • enhancing the value of data.

Their mission is to help an entire ecosystem to innovate, to operate more efficiently and to thrive.

Objective

of the day

STRATEGY

Teams will create a common understanding of the transformation and challenges of the target ecosystem

STRATEGY

The teams will have refined the ecosystem necessary to the project, and identified the most viable, cost-effective and high-impact opportunity.

OPERATIONAL PROJECTION

The teams will have developed a tangible action plan to launch the project.

DAY 1: DISCOVERY OF THE ECOSYSTEM

DAY 2 : EXPLORING OPPORTUNITIES

DAY 3 : PITCH AND ROADMAP

Morning

💧 The ecosystem approach and a case study of platform business models.

💧 Selection of the areas covered by the future platform(s).

💧 Evaluation and selection of prioritised ideas (impact, revenue, scale effects, etc.)

💧 Building business models (customers, value proposition, value creation, value capture).

💧 Definition of a long-term vision for the platform’s business model.

💧 Roadmap. 

💧 Pitch preparation.

Afternoon

💧 Ecosystem analysis (stakeholders, emerging technologies, culture, trends and regulations).

💧 Profiles and identification of problems/needs of identified stakeholders.

💧 Identification of opportunities in selected areas.

💧 Identification of the required partners (their roles and activities) in the ecosystem to build the platform.

💧 Preliminary assessment of the financial viability of the platform’s business models.

💧 Identification of missing partners in the ecosystem for a sustainable development of the platform.

💧 Discussion of the next steps and further development options.

Why participate? 

At the end of this programme, the group will have an innovation project in the form of a digital platform model, validated by experts, with a tangible action plan.

Meet other business/community leaders who want to share their skills, showcase their innovations and co-develop ideas for further innovation.

Create at an accelerated pace a project with a high potential for profitability & impact, and a minimised risk (by using digital platforms as a new tool to scale up existing or new solutions, increase the impact, find growth triggers and become part of a sustainable ecosystem).

Many ideas will have emerged (even if we will only keep one), which can also be used if relevant in another context.

At the end of the 3 days, everyone will have the possibility to continue with the team within our innovation & venture studio, or to withdraw and continue to work on your own project.

And finally because we are:

  • an international team of entrepreneurs, and we will challenge you,
  • experts in digital platforms and circular economy,
  • the creators of a unique set of tools and methodologies: the Platform Innovation Kit (PIK).

NOT SURE WHERE THIS WILL GET YOU?  THAT’S NORMAL !

At this point, you are probably wondering what this innovative project could be and what opportunities it could represent for your organisation…

We will focus on applications and user journeys according to the organisations that will join the programme; moreover, as entrepreneurs we will never start from the solution, but first from the problem to be solved. It is therefore impossible at this stage to anticipate the outcome of this collective work, and we are very confident: our methodologies and tools have proven themselves!

No obligation at the end of the programme

This programme is part of a complete methodology for creating, building and launching an impact platform; these 3 days are the 1st step: at the end of these 3 days, and once the common opportunity has been defined & calibrated, the organisations will have the possibility to withdraw to continue on their own, or to continue the programme to execute the shared project with the rest of the ecosystem.
