Innovation processes, or specifically the venture development process as we call it at KUBIKx, are very similar in most corporate company builders. Nevertheless, they can differ from each other in nuances. The crucial question is always: Can innovation be planned? 3M is known for giving employees a lot of freedom for new ideas. In this way, the company creates space for innovation. All employees are free to use 15 percent of their working time for their own innovation projects - regardless of their job or department.

We also follow a structure with our team, the venture development process, which gives room for the development of new ideas.
