Encouraging comments and positive feedback!


« Given the number who requested your follow up and additional information and those who came to me and said it was both interesting and valuable, I would say it was a home run!”

Michael Phillips – Managing Director of Global Professional Development


This event has been a fantastic opportunity for Expernova to benefit from Stage-Gate®’s 30 years of experience in the American market, to present their solution and develop their network.

A complementary partnership

« Much of the work undertaken in the front end stages of a Stage-Gate® idea-to-launch evaluation involves out-to-in work. Expernova provides a platform to quickly  search out other players who might be innovating in the same space, or who can provide expertise or even provide insight on the feasibility of the technologies that might be involved. So much innovation is taking place as co-development and so locating suitable partners, etc…, appears to be a functionality Expernova’s solution could provide ! »
