Innovation Lab

VE's Innovation Lab exists to encourage creativity, experimentation, and collaboration to drive forward-thinking initiatives, inventive strategies, and sustainable solutions.



Our Innovation Lab offers companies a dedicated space and framework to foster creativity, experimentation, and the development of new ideas, products, services, and processes.The Innovation Lab can be broken down into several stages:

Stage 1: Idea Generation

The goal of idea generation is to generate a wide range of ideas that can be further evaluated and developed. It is often the first step in the innovation process, providing a foundation for problem-solving, product development, or business strategy.

The ultimate aim is to generate a pool of potential ideas from which the most promising and innovative ones can be selected and developed further. These ideas can then be tested, prototyped, and implemented as solutions or opportunities for growth, improvement, or innovation within an organization or context.

Stage 2: Incubation and Further Development

The stage where promising ideas or projects are selected and nurtured to transform them into viable products, services, or business ventures.

Stage 3: Research Lab

Conducting scientific research and exploration to generate new knowledge, insights, and discoveries. It is a stage where researchers and scientists within the lab engage in systematic investigation and experimentation to explore potential solutions, validate concepts, or gain a deeper understanding of a particular problem or area of interest.

Stage 4: Product Prototyping

The process of creating a physical or digital representation of a product idea or concept. It involves constructing a working model or a scaled-down version of the product to test its functionality, design, and usability before moving into full-scale production. Prototyping helps in evaluating and refining the product design, identifying potential issues or improvements, and gathering feedback from stakeholders and potential users.

Stage 5: Industry + Ecosystem Engagement

We actively engage with external partners, startups, academia, and industry experts to foster collaboration, stay connected with emerging trends, and leverage external expertise.



We aim to serve companies, nonprofits, and government systems with the tools, technologies, and teams necessary to develop a product prototype from ideation to version 1 product prototype. We also pledge to serve other entrepreneurial communities and efforts through shared knowledge, education, and special interest groups.
