Open Innovation in a Networked World

The days of closed-door invention are long gone. The most innovative companies actively scout for new technologies and partners.

But how do you coordinate technology partners globally? How do you keep track of technologies in the pipeline? How do you integrate internal needs and external opportunities?

Tech Scouting is a complex business. And like other parts of the company, tech scouting teams depend on core systems and tools. Wellspring’s purpose-built software ensures rigor, clarity, and productivity for sustained success from scouting teams of 3 to 100.
