In a recent survey of 164 executives at companies with more than $1 billion in revenue, 26% of respondents told us the transition from innovation or R&D group to the business unit “needs serious work” at their company.
Another 16% described it as “terrible,” and said they’d seen multiple projects wither following the hand-off to a business unit.

About Gearbox SHIFT
In addition to being a sourcing and vetting solution, GEARBOX helps organizations to assess and improve their readiness to efficiently work together with startups.
To boost innovation and support entrepreneurial initiatives, many existing organizations source and reach out to startups for collaboration. However, working together with startups is not an everyday job, and both startups, as well as corporates, need to bridge each other’s worlds -- this is no easy task.
GEARBOX SHIFT helps by providing consultative services, including an on-site assessment and diagnostic to better understand whether organizations are prepared to collaborate.
Once the assessment is complete, we provide and implement structured initiatives to help arrive at 100% startup collaboration readiness.
