EarlyBirds: The Advantage of a Global Distributed Ecosystem

EarlyBirds: The Advantage of a Global Distributed Ecosystem

Troy Warren for CNT #NewsRoom


Australia based EarlyBirds is keen to discuss the advantages of a globally distributed innovative ecosystem. They make it their mission to help established enterprises identify potential innovative companies and solutions to help develop their innovation capability, scale and speed through their unique platform.

At present, the sole innovation hub that is both a household name and functions at a global scale is Silicon Valley in California. In order for companies to be able to build and develop a capability edge, EarlyBirds explains that they would need to explore and understand global innovations, following which they would need to work with the organisations that develop these innovations. According to studies, some of the emerging global ecosystems include Detroit in the US, Bucharest in Romania, Jakarta in Indonesia, Guangzhou in China and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. If a startup has the ability to tap into these global innovative ecosystems, these businesses are now open to a wide world of opportunities, access to expertise and resources and the chance to have a global impact. A globally distributed ecosystem would connect innovators from across the world, an immense benefit when tackling global issues such as climate or green technology.

The need to remain competitive is universal, but only organisations that can create a consistent capability edge will be able to do so. As they pursue this, they will need to remain relevant to their customers, minimise downtime and waste (in order to become more efficient), forge synergistic partnerships with other organisations and so on. What many businesses unfortunately fail to realise is that innovations in the digital age effectively means that they can no longer afford to think strictly in local terms. An innovation that is born on the other side of the world, for instance, can arrive quite swiftly and disrupt local economies (for better or worse). This may hold less of a threat to established businesses that have vast resources to cushion themselves with, but a startup is less likely to survive if it does not adapt.

EarlyBirds holds the position that a business that can accurately identify which innovations can have an impact on their operations will be more likely to preserve themselves and remain competitive. However, recognising a coming disruption is only the first step — an organisation will also have to determine how such challenges can be resolved.

Thanks to EarlyBirds and its platform and open ecosystem, businesses now have a way to be more proactive by intentionally seeking out innovation that will cause this change in their organisation. The advantage of this is obvious: a business that fuels innovation directly has more control over its path and can align its operations to suit a projected outcome ahead of time. This has the immediate effect of keeping them on the cutting edge of progress, and possibly even the only provider in cases where an innovation has no existing competitor.

The EarlyBirds platform and services functions as a global, open hub through which innovation can be sought, monitored and utilised as effectively as possible. Businesses can join today as Early Adopters and browse through a host of innovations that have already been created or submit a request for an Innovator to craft a custom solution. Given that EarlyBirds now boasts more than 2 million Innovators, Early Adopters are extremely likely to find either the product or the expertise they need. This is further assured by the platform’s assisted programs, Challenger and Explorer.

EarlyBirds is an open innovation ecosystem which provides a platform for organisations, who are registered as Innovators, Early Adopters and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), to accelerate capacity, speed and create a culture to innovate and solve business and technical challenges. They can also partner with upcoming businesses and startups, scaleups and mature Innovators. In particular, Early Adopters help young companies become self-learning organisations by facilitating continuous improvement across all their business functions, offering guidance in the prompt resolution of business and technical challenges and more. They also help explore disruptive business models, solutions and innovations.

The platform’s two co-founders, Kris Poria and Jeff Penrose, decided to build EarlyBirds to link Tech Innovators, Startups, Scaleups and Mature with Early Adopters to solve business challenges with actionable innovation. They also invested time interacting with many tech Incubators and Accelerators in Australia and globally, with EarlyBirds launching in September 2019. The company was also able to expand their team of Executives, establish an Advisory Board and create a pool of Subject Matter Experts.

Kris Poria and Jeff Penrose are available if interested parties wish to discuss the platform’s capabilities in greater detail or pursue any related inquiries. The EarlyBirds website also provides more insight on the functions of the pltafrom and their assisted services.
