Xinova | Budding InnovationsSingapore, March 28th, 2017 – Xinova and Singapore based Budding Innovations announced today they would expand their work to deliver breakthrough materials and packaging based innovations. The expansion strengthens both companies growth in Singapore, for the benefit of global corporate clients.

Xinova is funding Budding Innovations for the continued build-out of its prototyping capabilities, and to more rapidly turn early stage ideas into proof-of-principle and market relevant prototypes. This capability will drive innovation efficiency by both establishing feasibility at a very early stage and de-risking technology adoption for multinational clients. This process delivers prototypes that can be developed into scalable and commercially ready solutions much faster.

“Budding Innovations is excited to deepen its partnership with Xinova,” said Dr. Bert Grobben, Founder and CEO of Budding Innovations. “Application and contextual prototyping capabilities are critical for the selection of high potential early stage technologies, and to focus downstream resources more efficiently. Doing so rapidly, iteratively, and in the context of an identified client problem statement is key to driving innovation productivity.”

“Xinova is thrilled to expand its partnership with Budding Innovation and we look forward to continued growth for both businesses in Singapore and around the world” said Dr. Maggie Ng, VP and Head of the Technology Development Center at Xinova. “Budding Innovations has proven itself to be a great springboard into the Singapore innovation community. This partnership has generated positive outcomes across the board and both organizations now have additional headcount to further develop rapid prototyping capabilities. This partnership has been brought about thanks to the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board.”

An initial focus of the partnership will be on technologies and applications relevant to Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), as this sector has a significant need and interest in fast-paced innovation and real world prototyping. The team recently proved the benefits of the collaboration by successfully developing and licensing a new product concept, with several more innovations in active development. At a later stage, both companies will evaluate widening their rapid prototyping capabilities for a broader set of deep technology areas.
