Info session 5X5® innovation track
Are you an entrepreneur with a cupboard full of innovative ideas?
But do these ideas often remain on the shelf...
Then the 5X5® innovation track is something for you! With 5X5® Voka West-Flanders and Designregion Kortrijk offer companies the chance to develop their idea into a new product or service under supervision and in cooperation with a designer or design team.
From innovative idea to new product or service
For a company that wants to grow, it is necessary at some point to look for growth in new products and/or services.
After all, each product or service has only a limited lifespan.
Nevertheless, in practice, it is often the case that the issues of the day win out and that entrepreneurs in reality pay more attention to sales and marketing, purely because this produces immediate results. In the long run, however, such an approach leads to backlogs. The solution? Make sure that the development of new products or services is at the top of the agenda.
Voka West-Flanders, together with Designregio Kortrijk, is organising a project in which companies are given the opportunity to work with a design team on a new product or service. The final goal? The presentation of the prototype during a well-attended show event.
