Team – May 8th, 2019
My background. Well, over the last 10 years, I have developed and executed (open-) innovation development strategies in sectors like Fast Moving Consumer Good’s, Manufacturing and Governments. A significant part of my projects have kickstarted innovations through large eco-system activations and new collaborative programs.
Well, I strongly believe potential innovations for humanity and/ or that support the humanitarian and social space are mainly realized through strong collaborative efforts that leverage each eco-system partner’s competencies. In other words, we can innovate better and faster through strategic engagement with ecosystems. There is a saying that goes: “Many hands make light work” – I would add ‘only when competencies are aligned’.
Very straightforward story actually. I got a message with attached this role from someone close to me, asking; “Isn’t this is what you do and want?”. DCHI allows me to commit to what I enjoy, whilst being able to offer knowledge and know-how within a wider innovation context.
To help build, grow and showcase with our awesome team. To work together with this great coalition – and partnerteam that DCHI already has in place. And (of course!) to help leverage the know-how, capabilities and competencies of problem owners in the humanitarian field to formulate their challenges, find new ideas and innovative approaches.
