Where did our name come from?

Innovatrix is a combination of ‘innovation’ and ‘matrix’. It originated as methodology used within imec innovation services to structure innovations via a matrix of relevant domains. The matrix later evolved in to a set of models used to assist in ideation, research and acceleration of startups, leading to the birth of the innovatrix application.

Keep a clear overview of your venture portfolio and review your potential candidates. Each venture gets a total score based on objective parameters during the evaluation process, so decision-making should be easier.

Workshops & Events

Your ventures are your children, make sure you educate them and prepare them for the real world.

Organize domain specific workshops and keep track of who’s attending by consulting your dashboard filled with creative sessions and professional events.

The more your ventures will learn by attending these events, the more time you’ll have left to spend with your actual children.
