About Demand-Driven Innovation

Also known as challenge-based innovation, means understanding customers in underserved communities and paying attention to the channels that move goods and services to these markets.

Demand-driven innovation uniquely responds to the “pull” of demand rather than the “push” of supply. It supports:

  • Underserved customers access better products and services;
  • EU|BICs make larger impacts on social and environmental problems;
  • Governments serve their citizens;
  • Corporations and local businesses reach new markets and build sustainable value chains;
  • EU|BICs and client companies deliver on their missions.


About Best Practice Breakfast sessions 

Offering programmes and services are the key ways that many #EUBICs advance their organisation. If this describes your line of business, the themes and methods in your service offering are especially important to maintain the highest quality and attract new participants to get involved in a programme and make use of your services.

Is your programme offering relevant and catering to the needs of your client companies? Do your services provide in-depth explorations and guidance? If you’re not so sure or you would like to enrich your current service offering, we pulled together the best practices, helpful tips and examples from the community. The Best Practice Breakfast sessions are here to get your thoughts, connections and expertise brewing for a one-hour collective intelligence exchange with your peers.


The Best Practice Breakfast series invites two expert members per session to present experiences, results, and their open questions on the latest themes and approaches in business support. Leveraging the content we seek to stimulate replication and development of the methods shared. Each session starts with two short presentations (max. 10 min/ Pecha Kucha style) to then open up for questions, tips, and facilitate one-on-one follow-ups among participants.
