Gconsultancy Innovation is a London-based SME creating collaborative networks for companies to get the tools, skills and learning needed for business development.
In the view of Gconsultancy Innovation, “Networks are at the heart of innovation.” The young business sets up online spaces providing innovation education for a wide-range of companies.
This type of knowledge transfer is similar to the innovation ecosystem that Co-Innovate creates. Parallel viewpoints like these, brought Gconsultancy Innovation director Julia Goga-Cooke to Brunel University London’s schools of Business and Design. She was paired with students Gerad Gyedu and Fahim Ali.
Studying modern day marketing, Gerad was asked to develop a service that would connect employers with students looking for internships: Myinternship.org. Gerad created the business model and market entry strategy needed. Fahim designed the app for the service.
“I thought this was a unique opportunity,” said Julia, referring to interdisciplinary approach of myinternship.org. “I would have not been able to develop the research within this time frame and resources without Brunel.”
Both students were able to bring new insights to the company, who specialise in the relatively new concept of organisational innovation.
