“Stringcan has been much more than a mere provider. They've been a true partner. This was a dream project and Stringcan was key to making it a success.”

- Natalie Michel, Head of Innovation at BNP Paribas (OpenUp Project)


There are two kinds of companies today. Those that fear change. And those that embrace it.


We work with the latter. But doing so requires a mindset change. We don't believe in transformation. Our process is sustainable. It's more difficult but also more rewarding. We call it digital evolution. 


External Innovation


Forget everything you know about innovation. There's a different way of doing things for the companies of the future, and it includes a constant process that leverages external resources. 

This is especially true for startups, but most companies don't know how to build these relationships in the most effective way. We know the startup space better than anyone around. Let us help you navigate it.
