We focus on Benelux and Germany, and on the high tech industry sectors ICT, Electronic & Electrical Equipment, Automotive, and Life Sciences, as well as the process industry, including the Chemical, Metals, and Food processing sectors.
We accomplish this improved return on Open Innovation by providing practical professional services based on our own content and methods for innovation and collaboration management. This content is based on a combination of experience and research. Bicore's commitment in client assignments is focused on business results.
Since mid 2007, Simbon and BO4 have intensified the cooperation due to our many linkages in innovation expertise. BO4 has grown since 2002 into a renown specialist in innovation alliances, such as the World Class Maintenance Consortium WCMC, and the hydrogen fuel cell alliance WaterstofRegio. In the same period Simbon has developed into a leading consultancy firm in innovation management for innovative high-tech corporations, including Philips, Océ, and DAF Trucks. In 2008 we have decided to formalise the cooperation into a full merger of all activities of Simbon and BO4.
Thanks to the trust we have gained from our business relations, we now are a healthy and growing company with 15 professionals. To finish this successful integration we will from now on us the new name: Bicore. Bicore is our abbreviation for "Business Innovation COoperation REsults": we focus on business results via innovative cooperation. The new size and scale allows us to further professionalize our methods and techniques for your benefit.
