We started Untap when we saw how low the investment in R&D and innovation activities is in developing countries even though there are large untapped intellectual potentials that – if put to use – would generate innovative solutions and great returns on investment. Most academic research efforts are basic and not connected to industry and market needs. There are also very few programs that systematically connect startups to corporates. Moreover, companies and governments rarely collect and integrate the feedback of their consumers and citizens throughout the entire product or service life cycle.

Untap provides the tools and the necessary support programs that help organizations tap into their innovation sources and get the best ideas out of their employees, consumers, partners, startups, and vast innovation networks.
