GlaxoSmithKline was looking to establish an ecosystem of partners for growth in a specific healthcare segment. Venture2 was asked to lead an accelerated collaboration effort with a leading university.


We mapped needs and capabilities in key areas for both GSK and its university partner. We helped them prioritize the most promising areas, then recruited the right groups to a series of successful collaborative summits. Two large-scale collaborative projects emerged representing significant opportunity for growth.

“GSK has worked closely with Venture2 on a variety of initiatives across our businesses. Their extensive experience in Open Innovation and their focus on delivering real results have been tremendously helpful to us in achieving a leadership position in delivering new innovations.”
