Open innovation

Over time, Wylab has become a key reference for companies as a collector and enabler of innovation processes through the transfer of ideas, skills and solutions that come from the outside world.

The selection of partners and talents that guarantee companies the necessary opportunities to pursue their innovative paths and improve their production activities has always been one of the main missions of the Incubator.

Wylab plays this role through Calls For Ideas, Calls For Start-ups, Corporate Entrepreneurship and incentives for setting up joint ventures, assisting the open innovation processes that are essential today for companies in every sector in every way.

Case History

Nowtilus – Sea Innovation Hub

Since 2017, thanks to the support of some important corporate companies and institutions, we have been selecting and supporting the best business projects in Liguria, in search of innovative ideas, talents and start-ups in the field of the Sea Economy, food and tourism, Creativity & Design, sustainability and the environment.

You Dream We Believe

For 3 years we have been accompanying Illumia S.p.a. in its innovation challenge, through the organization of a contest to identify early-stage start-ups with high potential and promote innovation and employment in the energy sector.

Liguria Creates Business

Dal 2017, grazie al sostegno di alcune importanti aziende corporate e istituzioni, selezioniamo e supportiamo i migliori progetti imprenditoriali del territorio ligure alla ricerca di idee, talenti e startup innovative nell’ambito dell’Economia del mare, food e turismo, Creativity & Design, sostenibilità e ambiente.

Having worked closely with the young talents who participated in the contest was like reliving our history, and I would really like to thank the participants for the energy they have given us in the last few days. The start-up world has always been ours… We need a closer approach to the latest technologies, especially to diversify and customize something as intangible as energy. This gave us the idea of launching the project with an equally innovative company like Wylab, and we will certainly repeat it, given the success of this year
