Corporate Innovation Academy

MAKE CONTINUOUS INNOVATION A CORE COMPETENCE OF YOUR ORGANIZATION

Staying ahead requires continuous innovation. The biggest challenge for today’s organizations is balancing the execution of their current business model (exploitation) and the search for new business models (exploration). ECE supports companies by developing their entrepreneurial talent as well as by helping them organize their internal innovation practices. As the leading entrepreneurship centre in Europe, we work according to a unique, integral model on corporate entrepreneurship based on both science and real-world experience.

HOW WE WORK

Research shows that corporate survival and renewal depend greatly on ambidexterity: an organisation’s capability to
simultaneously execute existing business models and build new business models. At the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE) we’ve developed an approach that views ambidexterity and corporate entrepreneurship from an integral perspective. You can download our whitepaper below to learn more about our approach!
