The SIG Innovation Accelerator (SIA) offers a portfolio of services to help develop and improve the innovation pipeline for Source through Supply Chain and related functions. SIA combines the collective knowledge and strengths of SIG’s buy-side companies to create new products and evaluate meritorious mid-stage products in the Source through Supply Chain (SSC) space.
To help ensure a robust pipeline of innovative products, SIA also works with select mid-stage and earlier-stage providers to assist them in product development and market penetration. SIA works with SIG members to find and fill gaps in technology that can help the C-Suite drive strategic impact, improve profits and mitigate risk. In turn, SIA accelerates the acceptance of these emerging technologies in the marketplace by providing real time feedback from the industry.
SIA is focused on:
- Identifying, evaluating and selectively facilitating development of new S2P products. At the discretion of SIA’s Leadership Council, products that serve other areas may be included
- Evaluating and rating especially interesting mid-stage products as well as facilitating special pricing and terms for SIG’s members
- Coaching, educating and assisting select early-stage providers on how to efficiently succeed with F1000 companies
