Partnerships with the Innovation Makers Alliance (IMA) in France, and the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) in the United States
Facilitated access to industrial markets
The SCS ecosystem comprises more than 300 members offering solutions for the Internet of Things, Big Data, Artificial intelligence and Digital Security.
Having access to major groups who are the leaders in their respectives fields is a prerequisite to the success of our young start-ups and SMEs in order to develop their innovations.
The motivation behind these two partnerships is to be able to work more closely with leading organizations that comprise major industrial players both in France and internationally.
Increased momentum on the French market
SCS has joined the IMA to allow its ecosystem of small enterprises to establish relations with more than 1,000 innovation leaders working for major French corporations, and thus propose innovative solutions for the Internet of Things and Digital Security, among others.
The IMA brings together the digital and technological innovation leaders of 82 large businesses. Via an array of vehicles for exchange such as conferences, reverse forums, digital platforms, and ice breakers, among others, it is intended to create interactions between innovation leaders and solution providers.
The topics covered by the IMA are mainly emerging technologies and new uses such as Artificial intelligence, virtual or augmented reality, blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT), cybersecurity, and predictive maintenance for the industry of the future.
At the core of the world’s Industrial Internet of Things
The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) is the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things. It brings together more than 500 of the world’s leading industrial businesses. Its missions are to instil a high level of confidence in the Industrial Internet of Things by allowing the deployment of experiments on the ground.
Thanks to this partnership, the SCS Cluster’s start-up members will gain access to global industrial leaders via testbeds and the deployment of their innovative solutions, in particular on high-growth market such as Industry 4.0, automotive, smart grids, and wearables.
SCS players across the IoT’s value chain, from hardware to embedded software, will thus benefit from exciting deployment opportunities.
“Offering targeted opportunities with the biggest companies is the best way to allow our fledgling businesses and SMEs to expand and create the growth needed for their transformation into intermediate-sized enterprises.
Via these partnerships, SCS plays its role as a growth facilitator and accelerator for the benefit of its members, leveraging an increasing level of competitiveness from collaborative R&D on the markets”. – Georges Falessi, Chief executive officer of the SCS Cluster”. – Georges Falessi, Chief executive officer of the SCS Cluster
