The Science Park of the University of Salamanca has hosted the presentation of INDRAVENTURES, as a model of open innovation from  INDRA.

For INDRA, adaptation to a new context is understood as a key factor, essential for remaining in the vanguard in technological innovation, and for giving a strategic boost to their ability to generate, accelerate and incorporate in their offers innovative and ground-breaking ideas for products and services. INDRA has responded to this challenge with the launch of a New Innovation Model, which is a novel approach to the innovation process that is more agile and flexible, at the same time that it broadens and intensifies its mechanisms for relating to the ecosystem. INDRA seeks out Innovation wherever it is coming from, and is prepared to support new ideas that mark the difference, as well as the entrepreneurs willing to implement them. This is the foundation of its New Innovation Model.

INDRAVENTURES is open to the entire innovative ecosystem, from external agents such as startups, universities, technological centers or accelerators to the professionals of the company itself that will drive intrapreneurship as a source of innovation.
