The Growth Labs Corporate Innovation Programs

At The Growth Labs, we help companies get greater value from their innovation programs.

We have a formalized system to identify startups, curate and nurture them across industry sectors and technologies. This is done in partnership with startup bodies, incubators and top educational institutes, supported by an industry expert from our team. This ensures that we are able to forge the right partnership.

We have found in our experience that corporates and startups find it hard to directly engage with each other due to clash of culture and philosophy. We combine our knowledge of both worlds to forge a meaningful partnership with great results.


For many large auto majors, The Growth Labs runs their innovation program.

Under this program we continue to identify high-potential startups and new-age companies with solutions relevant for the client. We have already curated over 750 startups and identified over 40 for various levels of engagement.
