November 14h, 2016 - Bordeaux


33entrepreneurs supports Bordeaux Open Place to bring together a whole ecosystem of innovators, entrepreneurs, corporations and specialized service providers. #playToYourStrengths


Every month, 33entrepreneurs' team of explorers go around the world to deep dive into local entrepreneurial ecosystems. We meet with local talent, with passionate entrepreneurs and innovators.

We like sharing insights as well as a glass of Wine and talk on your vision on how to re-invent: Food, Beverage or Hospitality.

Share insights

On a day to day basis, we work with global leaders in the Food, Beverage or Hospitality markets. Their practices in Open Innovation are worth being shared with other decision makers.

Leveraging our partnership with IHEIE, we set up a Scientific Board from top academics institutions such as Mines ParisTech, UC Berkeley, Shanghai Jiao Tong University... Together we benchmarked more than 250 corporations. This led us to define:

  • best practices in Open innovation
  • an index to measure those practices
  • a Ranking to mobilize stakeholders

Introduce our Framework

We will give you some examples of our framework to help startups and large coprorations generate positive outcomes in innovation:

  • idea sourcing to help large corporations re-invest themselves
  • team assessment to validate the adequate fit betwwen startups and corproations
  • innovative product testing, in real conditions, sandboxed, where large corporation buy the startups' products.

We call this framework the David & Goliath Dance. Implemented with world leaders.
