INNES Steals the Limelight at CES 2019 with World Class Innovation Center
Burgeoning technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and IoT are redefining the ways in which industries operate. Optimal utilization of technology allows organizations to increase their ROI, operational efficiency, and productivity. As an outcome, it has become crucial to dig deep in these technologies for industrial advancement. Innovation centers are a key requirement for exploring these technologies for breakthroughs. INNES, a recently launched start-up is going to open up an innovation center, finding its grounds in Craiova, is to be built with a similar idea of providing a platform to global companies interested in exploring and conducting research and development projects in Romania.
INNES is one of the 4 start-ups from Romania to participate in CES-2019—the consumer electronics show held in Las Vegas—that has grabbed the spotlight when it announced to open a world-class innovation center just outside Craiova recently. The innovation plan is backed by the recently received funding from the European Union. INNES chairman Bogdan Stanache attended the show to meet global companies and collaborate to build solution partners for technological ameliorations. Stanache encouraged tech leaders to consider Craiova as he cites the availability of quality talent with affordability which is need of the hour for companies across the globe.
Being a tech enthusiast since his childhood inspired him to go for a world-class innovation center for new technologies. “We aim to be one of the most important IT center worldwide, connecting Silicon Valley with Europe, Middle East, and Asia. In our journey will join us partners such as Universities, similar innovation centers, big companies, local institutions, and fund investments” says, Stanache.
INNES innovation center is anticipated to fulfill all criteria of a world-class solution such as an electronic display, whiteboards and wall space, and rapid prototype making materials which will aid brainstorming new explorations. The center is supposed to be inaugurated in 2020 with half of the tenants from outside Romania. At CES, Stanache primarily focused on companies looking for locations outside the U.S. to develop projects related to blockchain, IoT, AI, and cybersecurity.
