Few companies in the world can rely on their own R & D as a sole source of new opportunities for the company. They often need “external” technologies developed by other companies, universities or government laboratories, to develop the products and services of tomorrow. This is the reason why the Open Worldwide Innovation Network, Inc. (OWIN) was created with the main objective to provide an exclusive worldwide consortium of services, to expand global innovations and foster entrepreneurship.
OWIN is a non-profit, an international business membership association that builds on the successes of its members. It is inspired by a joint partnership between Texas A&M Technology Commercialization (TTC) in College Station, Texas; the Wallonia Foreign Trade and Export Agency (AWEX) in Walloon, Belgium; Coway International TechTrans Co., Ltd (COWAY) in Beijing, China; and Trade and Investment Queensland Australia (TiQ) in Queensland, Australia.
The core concept of OWIN is open innovation. It connects your business – big companies, SMEs or non-profits – to help you deliver better product and services, meet the needs of your clients but also strengthen your network, raise resources and connect with the best innovators, worldwide.
Speed to market is the essence in our technology driven globalized world.
This network represents a new collaborative effort between leading organizations in major geo-economic hubs. It accelerates growth.
