In September 2019, bluenove strengthened its leadership position in collective intelligence with the acquisition of Succeed Together, thus completing its technological offering.
In June 2020, bluenove took another step forward in its technical development. The company has now expanded to the UK, and will be be represented by the Liminal network.
Liminal brings together a community of people working specifically in the field of collective intelligence. This network is made up of some sixty entrepreneurs, creative, strategy, and technology enthusiasts from a wide range of backgrounds. It is involved in innovation, transformation, and change management programs, both for multinationals and for think-tanks or NGOs.
The strategic partnership with Liminal will allow bluenove to develop its massive collective intelligence offers in the UK market, for both public and private organizations.
Roland Harwoord, founder and director of Liminal, is the driving force behind this partnership. A compulsive connector of people and ideas, Roland previously co-founded 100%Open, an award-winning open innovation agency active in more than 25 countries.
From Frank Escoubès, co-founder and co-President of bluenove, “I am delighted with this collaboration with Roland and the Liminal network, so much so that our convictions on participation and change through deliberation come together. The particularity of this “network” is that it is able to carry out joint corporate projects and citizen mobilization initiatives, which will enable us to pursue our developments in the private, governmental and civic sectors from London.”
Martin Duval, co-founder and co-President of bluenove, adds:
“I had the privilege to know Roland in 2010 when he co-founded 100%Open, focusing on open innovation consulting. I’m so proud that he now represents blunove in the UK to promote massive collective intelligence technologies.”
Roland Harwood from Liminal network states,
“Through our partnership with bluenove, we are excited to be able to harness our collective intelligence to build a more sustainable, equitable and empathetic world.”
