Accessing the diverse range of inputs required to innovate has become an expensive and very high-risk activity. While the largest and best capitalized corporations are able to spend enormous amounts on innovation, the return is relatively low and is becoming the preserve of a relative wealthy few. Xinova is a next evolution innovation company. Operating as a networked model, we create and share the risk of not only ideas but also capital, prototyping, demand, supply, communication, risk, time, IP, relationships - ALL the elements you need to innovate efficiently. We aim to be the world’s leading innovation sharing company where you’re both a customer and a contributor.
