the INNOVATION PLATFORM FOR FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES
THE BUILDERS IN NUMBERS
ABOUT THE BUILDERS
We build tailor-made Commercialization Programs to help our Fortune 500 partners save money or increase
growth using technology.
The Builders is an innovation platform that builds meaningful relationships between startups and corporates, to create value by focusing on the corporate’s business needs and goals, turning the “conversion rate” of innovations into adopted corporate practice.
Our structured Commercialization Programs bring digital solutions to our partners’ specific business needs. Using a unique methodology, we not only match the partner with the most relevant startups but also see the relationship through, from the first engagement all the way to full scale.
We work closely with our partners and are guided by their needs, knowing it's impossible to provide a solution without understanding the problem.
R&D INNOVATION PROGRAM
Long-term projects related to food technologies, material sciences, and other areas where a longer research and implementation process is required. Utilizing a wide spectrum of competencies, activities, tools & networks, we work to configure long-term solutions that fit the partner’s specific structure, culture, needs, and priorities.
More BUILDING BLOCKS
Bridging between the corporate and the startup worlds, we realized that startups have much more to offer than just their products. Creativity, outside the box thinking and risk taking are just a few of many traits that entrepreneurs are celebrated for. What if we could enhance those traits within our corporate partners? What if we could leverage our deep understanding of the startup world, and the booming Israeli eco-system, by using real life challenges, inspiring technology and world changing entrepreneurs? With that thought in mind, and in close consultations and guidance from our partners, we built The Builders Innovation Academy– a platform for shared knowledge in the areas of innovation, technology, and business challenges. The Innovation Academy includes webinars, dedicated workshops, and themed events.
ONLINE EVALUATION PLATFORM
For the refinement of The Builders' startup selection funnel, we created the Online Review Platform. The platform presents a complete profile of the participating startups, enabling the corporate stakeholders to rank and assess them based on business needs.
With a simple to use interface, the platform helps involve more stakeholders, who don't necessarily deal with innovation as part of their day job, in the selection process, thus assuring the best fit of the solutions to the corporate's needs and culture.
THE BUILDERS FUND
An investment platform, designed to support the graduating startups with financial investments. The Builders Fund leverages the unique commercialization platform to help support and maximize the financial and strategic success of the program's alumni.
A series of collaborations between our corporate partners facilitated and organized by The Builders. Working together on specific business needs, while having the opportunity to engage in open conversations with associates on all levels, launching common initiatives, sharing best practices, and more.
