HOW WE HELP
We typically work with institutions on two fronts: internal innovation, i.e. the institution as an end user of the innovation outcomes, or initiatives with social and territorial impact, where the institution works to support a region or community.
In either mode, we always build the project with an eye toward enhancing the assets of entrepreneurship, talent, economic growth and sustainability.
Although the projects we develop inevitably have an informational element, they have a more central cultural component. As we often reiterate, there can be no strategy and innovation in the absence of shared mindsets and core values. For this reason, we often find ourselves engaging the employees and collaborators of institutions alongside community members in our initiatives in order to generate a concrete impact.
Entrepreneurial training programs
We develop our training programs to support the birth of new businesses and startups in the region. We apply integrative methodologies to validate ideas and finish the program with a feasible, concrete, sustainable project.
Creation of vertical ecosystems
We bring together startups, companies and territorial stakeholders with common values and objectives. We encourage dialogue and foster ecosystems that create value.
Scouting and investment programs
We research, select and support high-potential startups to encourage entrepreneurial development in the regions where we work and, with the support of the Barcamper Ventures fund, of which we are exclusive advisor, we help foster their growth.
Innovation of institutions and public administration
We develop open innovation initiatives (e.g. startup scouting, hackathons, competitions, calls for talent…) to help civil society groups and the public sector to innovate. These are always %22open%22 projects that can impact both the innovation of the institution and create opportunities for third parties (startups, companies, young people…).
OUR MODEL AT THE BASE OF MATCHING
At dpixel we apply a method inspired by the collision theory proposed by Max Trautz and William Lewis in 1916. This theory states that for a chemical reaction to be successful, molecules must collide according to an exact pattern under certain conditions.
In the same way, at dpixel, we create collisions through projects, methods and initiatives that bring together ecosystem players and causing companies and startups to collide, effectively generating value, innovation and opportunities for both.
