Accelerating technological disruptions and societal changes are redefining competitive advantages and creating new markets.

Our experience shows that whether a company will lose or benefit from those transformations depends on a few skills:

  • Strategy: Understanding emerging opportunities and framing clear priorities
  • Ecosystem: Securing new partnerships beyond their current value chain, including with startups which are often the pioneers
  • Mindset and ways of working: Create an environment where experimentation is encouraged before innovations are mature enough to be fully integrated into business units

We work with our clients on those three dimensions, combining our experience from the best consulting firms and our position as the orchestrator of the largest deep tech ecosystem.

So, let’s talk
  • Working with Hello Tomorrow has been a great experience. What makes us prefer them to bigger agencies is the quality of the deliverables they provide while creating a work atmosphere that is enjoyable and highly transparent. We have built a strong relationship thanks to their reliable, professional, and insightful team. We never had the impression they were trying to find shortcuts in the job and the approach was really solid.

As Servier R&D was starting to build their new research institute in Saclay (expected in 2023), they decided to develop an incubation offer for Drug Discovery and Medical Biotech startups, based on Servier’s main areas of expertise.

They asked Hello Tomorrow to help them design the best incubator for startups, leveraging our large network.

To pursue a user-centric design, we involved startups as early as possible in the discussions, strongly believing that their experience and insights would be a real asset in imagining the future Servier R&D incubator.

Moreover, Servier’s executives wanted to onboard and educate their collaborators (and futur incubator mentors) about the specific needs of deep tech and healthcare startups, in order to prepare and engage them in future assignments.

Our Approach

We conducted a three-step program:

  1. We first sent a survey to a subset of our global network to gather their insight on what an “Servier incubator” should provide, and analysed the results.
  2. Then, we organised a workshop with 15 French startups. Due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, we held it online, pushing us to adapt our proprietary methodology to the situation. The workshop involved more than 30 startups and 6 Servier decision makers, including their Research Scientific Director and Department Head on Prospective & Opportunities.
  3. Learning expedition: Once Servier’s decision maker team was aware of the challenges and roles of a deep tech incubator, we took the collaborators that will operate in the future incubator at a Learning Expedition to the Hello Tomorrow Global Summit. They met pioneer healthcare startups and engaged in discussions with them, through collective sessions about best practices in incubation as well as working groups about startups concrete expectations in incubators (whereas in terms of human and financial support than industrial and scientific expertise, strategy etc.)

What we provided

Both the survey and the workshop results allowed us to build a common vision, shared with Servier R&D and the startups, highlighting Servier’s unique positioning and sought after scientific expertise. 

As a summary, a prioritized list of key functionalities, offers and expertise expected by startups was provided, all linked to specific key internal and external stakeholders to be onboarded.

The Learning Expedition at Hello Tomorrow’s Global Summit allowed future incubator mentors and collaborators to engage with the community of deep tech startups in a direct and intimate way. 

As a result, Servier’s collaborators understood how their future working routines and objectives will change in an fast-paced environment. 

They also got a clear view of startups’ expectations of an incubator.
