Tech discovery guides

When you innovate, by definition you are entering uncharted territory. This means that there is no established playbook. Legacy best practices don’t apply.

But there are methods that help you discover the insights you need for innovating faster and stronger.

Good places to start

How to get a 360° view on a topic

Venture news, market estimates, patents, scientific publications, blogs, etc.—you never know where an interesting innovation may show up. That’s why you need a 360° view.

Tips for better search strategies

Learn how you can dramatically reduce time-to-insight, using search strategies that are more effective than legacy approaches.

Discovering early-stage deep tech companies

See how you can discover early-stage companies that are based on substantial scientific or engineering challenges—often called ‘deep tech companies’.

How to distinguish trend from hype

By taking into account information from across different data sets, you can much more reliably tell trend from hype.

The Tech Discovery Guide

See how successful innovators discover emerging technologies, research, companies, experts, and new markets.

For example, you will learn:

  • How you can make better search queries for discovering new ideas.
  • Why you should iterate, rather than plan too much in advance.
