Taking an idea from concept to reality can be difficult for startups. Entrepreneurs with great ideas often struggle to get the attention of prospective customers, which can make it difficult for them to grow into robust scaleups that have a strong customer base.
In order to facilitate that transition, IBM has published the Bluemix Garage Method, an open design method to help startups take an idea from conception to execution. To support this initiative, IBM has created innovation spaces for startups and enterprise to converge.
One of the most significant contributions that this initiative will make to startups is to help them connect with IBM’s enterprise customers. Startups will be able to leverage IBM’s staying power to move from the startup to scaleup stage by offering their solutions to IBM’s enterprise customer base.
