Inovation Rampup, how to access to NExT Innovation®
Innovation Rampup is a routemap dedicated to external companies, which helps them to be more confident with the themes of Digital Transformation and Industry 4.0.
At now, the participation to the Rampup for companies settled in the province of Como is facilitated by the Voucher of the Chamber of Commerce of Como and the entrepreneurial Associations that adhere to the NExTInnovation® project.
Innovation Rampup develops in three steps:
- THE WORLD IS CHANGED
The first step consists on a 4 half days journey in ComoNExT, where entrepreneurs and their management (up to 8 people) are guided through innovative business, business games, front lessons, and real cases of digital dynamics which drive innovation in companies. It is a training course.
- MY WORLD IS CHANGED
The second step lasts about 6 half days; ComoNExT’s consulting team visits the company who participated to the first step to collect information on all business departments (i.e. design, procurement, production, sales, logistics, aftersales) to analyse products, processes, and methods adopted by the company. At the end of the path ComoNExT presents a Macro Assessment report to highlight the company’s strengths and weaknesses related to Digital and 4.0 Business Aptitude. Moreover, it suggests which actions could be taken to foster innovation, to comply with Industry 4.0 and to be more competitive. It is a consulting path.
- NOW I CHANGE
According to the Macro Assessment report produced at the end of step 2, the company may decide to follow one or more suggestions, even using skills available at ComoNExT.

This tool is particularly effective because it allows the promoting company absolute personalization in compliance with the rigorous selection model set by ComoNExT.
The dissemination phase of the notice edited by the ComoNExT communication team in line with that of the Company enhances the image of the company itself, adding to the communication tools already in use and allowing access to channels dedicated in particular to technological innovation, to startups, to contests at least at the national level.
