Two continents, two centers of innovation. And one platinum standard way to connect them.

Innomine - Trusted transatlantic innovation advisors

“It’s a 21st Century transatlantic cable for the innovation economy,” said George Tilesch, Innomine’s US managing partner.

Established boutique consultancy Innomine has announced it is merging its European and Silicon Valley operations, putting it in the top spot to deliver prestige European startups, innovation partnerships and public funding to Silicon Valley's best investors and corporations.

“It’s a 21st Century transatlantic cable for the innovation economy,” said George Tilesch, Innomine’s US managing partner.

After gaining Europe-wide recognition through its more than a decade of work for top-tier clients such as Microsoft, DIGITALEUROPE and the European Commission, as well hundreds of tech companies, Innomine underwent a rebrand last year.

Now with 20+ specialist innovation consultants across multiple European locations, including Brussels, Barcelona and Budapest, Innomine has opened its Redwood City office in 2015 in partnership with prestigious international corporate law firm White Summers.

The new arrangement will make Innomine the one-stop elite spot for US corporations, scale-ups, and investors looking to get a foothold in European markets, find top-notch collaborators or take advantage of European public funding for transatlantic projects.

“It's Europe delivered to Silicon Valley on a silver platter," Tilesch said.

Tilesch, a seasoned Silicon Valley professional, will hold down the fort in the US, while international business strategist Gabor Vicze will coordinate operations from Brussels and Budapest.

Besides top-flight concierge services for companies looking to make the international scale-up leap, Innomine offers integrated partner matchmaking services for corporate, investor and government clients. US clients will benefit from Innomine's prescreened roster of over 4,000 European startups, coupled with analytics services and valuable relationships with startups and innovation hubs across the Atlantic.

"With the support of innovation experts like Innomine, European start-ups can do more than just dream about developing the technology of the future in Silicon Valley," said Dr. Marianna Ritter, CEO of Innomine client iLex, an IBM Global Entrepreneur Partner with an award-winning product for handling legal process systems.

US Managing Partner George Tilesch has almost 20 years of experience in innovation strategy and program management. Previously he was in senior roles at the European Commission, Fleishman Hillard, Microsoft and TechSoup Global, creating large-scale, global solutions at the often labyrinthine intersection of the public, private and social sectors. George is also the President and Chairman of the Board of Neumann Society, a transatlantic innovation community.

Dr. Gabor Vicze is an international business strategist for highly complex R&D and innovation projects with a focus on digital technologies and digital transformation. He is a former member of DIGITALEUROPE’s Executive Board and held leadership positions at Econet, Microsoft, KPMG and Arthur Andersen.

Under their leadership, Innomine is creating a smooth path for an international flow of innovation between Silicon Valley and Europe by facilitating top-level transatlantic innovation projects and partnerships, offering the best of both worlds to help fulfill the joint innovation potential of America and Europe.
