Seizing innovation where it takes shape: this is the aim of our global network of Enel Innovation Hubs, created to discover startups and SMEs whose technology, products or services have significant potential to be transformed into business solutions. As we move forward into a new era of energy transition, our global Innovation Hubs have enabled us to pursue innovation and sustainability through an open and collaborative mindset.
Our network of Innovation Hubs collaborates with the local innovation ecosystem to communicate primary challenges that the Enel Group is trying to solve. Startups and SMEs selected by the Group’s Global Business Lines have the opportunity to collaborate directly with a partner that offers support in the development of technological solutions and new business models.
Through our collaborations, we provide startups and SMEs with access to our network of laboratories, internal and external experts from around the world, investors and financial resources, industrial plants, customers and data.
Enel Innovation Hubs allow the Group to discover and connect with local talent to respond to emerging challenges. These strategic Hubs are located in the world’s leading innovation ecosystems and work together with stakeholders such as venture capital funds, accelerators, incubators, universities, industrial players and government institutions.
Enel Innovation Hubs bridge the gap between Enel’s sustainable vision and startups’ technological solutions. We continually search for startups and SMEs to collaborate with us in order to make traditional businesses more efficient and to generate industrial growth through new business models.
