Ideas for products and services are often successful early on but die a death trying to cross the chasm between the early and mainstream markets. By focusing on the key aspects of the innovation lifecycle during each step, our innovation pipeline is designed to help move seamlessly from early incubation to global scale. The newly opened Ericsson Garage and the Chief Innovation Office in Silicon Valley address this challenge by establishing a framework that spans the whole process – from ideation to market adaption.
Ericsson Garage Silicon Valley – along with a new Experience Center – were officially opened in October 2016. Among early visitors were guests from the Berkeley Innovation Forum, who stepped into the new facility for an interactive and engaging experience, where we introduced the Ericsson Garage and our new corporate innovation process.
Innovations are what the future is built on. The ability to develop an idea from opportunity into a thriving commercial offering is vital for technology companies if they want to stay competitive. Ericsson Research has created the Ericsson Garage to improve our capability to develop innovative ideas.
