Quality Innovation

Innovation creates added value: Invest in our unique Innovation approach

Scientific studies have repeatedly shown that there is a direct correlation between the innovation efficiency of companies and their success on the stock market. By 2012, the Harvard study «Misvaluing Innovation» pointed out this correlation.

Innovation efficiency describes a company's ability to introduce innovations in a controlled manner – for example, in production processes, business model innovations, market segments, or product improvements.

Companies that regularly innovate successfully benefit through sales growth, higher profits, and a faster presence on the market. It seems obvious that the share prices of companies with such successes rise.

Serafin Innovation Hub makes Innovation measurable

Serafin takes the next decisive step: not recognizing innovation by its success, but measuring innovation efficiency as the driver for success in companies. This is measured using various indicators that relate to the input and output side of innovation.

How is Innovation measurable?

  • Calculation of innovation-efficient companies with scientifically proven methods
  • Quantitative analyses of various input and output factors
  • Breakdown by objectively measurable criteria
  • The method is independent of industries, company sizes, or locations

In simple terms, a company is innovation-efficient if it makes as much "Innovation" as possible from each input investment. In fact, many different parameters and relationships flow into the assessment.

Our proprietary research drives our scientific approach to innovation in signal generation from innovation data. Innovation research is data-dependent, and our process benefits from our academic insights as well as computational power.
