Valid8 INnovation Readiness SCORE

The Valid8 Innovation Readiness Score is a statistical decision making tool to guide a founder’s journey to successful commercialisation. It’s the assurance you need before taking the next steps into self-funding, proof of concepts or investment.

What is it?

The Valid8 Innovation Readiness Score is is a statistical decision support tool for commercialisation and investment based on neuroscience, academic papers, research, analysis and experience.  

The Innov8 Readiness Score is not a guarantee of success but a guide to help set priorities, identify gaps and focus resources on addressing those factors which are more likely to correlate to success, or result in failures. 

Valid8 has designed a framework  to allow “freedom” for assessors to converse with founders/businesses/product developers/entrepreneurs about the opportunities and threats that are common in the innovation/startup/scale up process.

The Valid8 Readiness Score relies on evidence provided across multiple categories and data points to highlight the “market readiness” of your product for launch, trial or investment.
