Jul 16, 2021 Study: Corporations on the Track of Start-ups 2021 Hamburg, 16 July 2021. The digital innovation scene is as lively as ever – even the Corona Pandemic has not changed that. However, the big revolution has failed to appear. While five years ago, Digital Innovation Units were seen as comprehensive solutions for everything, today, their scope is defined clearer and more precisely. Only a few units added noticeable value in earnings to their parent company. This is the result of the study “Corporations on the Track of Start-ups 2021” by Infront Consulting, a subsidiary of KPS AG, and the economy magazine “Capital”. The study is the largest of its kind in the German-speaking area. It shows how well-established corporations and medium-sized enterprises can foster and manage innovation using dedicated innovation units.
