The RevelX Search Process Modules

In the search process, the crux is to get ahead of everybody else in spotting valuable trends, startups and scaleups. Getting access to these is no easy task. Finding breakthrough technologies in the labs of research centres and universities is even more difficult.

Proper search implies research of everything out there. There are many sources and no single source covers all. In order to win you must be very proactive

RevelX offers two modules to improve your search process:

Advanced Scouting

Advanced scouring is aimed at widening the scope of your search process and improving the qualifying and vetting of potential partners.

  1. The starting point of the scouting process is your innovation strategy. For which specific use cases and or strategic challenges do you want to engage in corporate venturing?
  2. The next step is to scout a wide array of sources for potential corporate venturing opportunities or solutions
  3. The longlist will be narrowed down through a validation (qualifying and vetting) process into a shortlist of potentials.
  4. The potential candidates will be matched with the business and it’s specific challenges and requirements. First engagements are organized, with letters of intent (LOIs) as a result when the match is positive.


Our Advanced Scouting module has been closely developed with our technology partners.

Innovation Challenges

Where our Advanced Scouting module sets you up for proactive search, our Innovation Challenges module focusses on organizing campaigns and open innovation challenges around one or more specific innovation problems and strategic opportunities.


This module comes as a highly automated process that we organize in close cooperation with our innovation technology partner Qmarkets. Qmarkets is one of the top tier end-to-end software providers in the field of innovation and Open Innovation.

The RevelX Venturing Management Module

To become more successful in corporate venturing you must organize and manage for success!

This implies a well-structured corporate venturing management process. The basis for this process can be found in this Playbook, based on the best practices in the field.

It also calls for a standardized workflow, fitting with the organization’s systems and being agile enough to respond quickly to arising opportunities.

Based on your maturity level, this module will be broken down into the following deliverables:


When your innovation strategy is clear, and you know what you want to achieve it is time to design the way to create success! In a design sprint workshop, we will jointly construct a continuous and efficient process for corporate venturing, including appropriate levels of automation.


The corporate venturing process must be aligned with the business. Not as a stand-alone and one-off activity. It should be integrated with the company’s strategy and internal innovation processes, as one continuous process. Communication, and a proper governance structure (like a Growth Board) are key activities.


We configure the corporate venturing process and tooling to function within your organization. This means configuring the (automated) venturing platform and turning on the external sources for scouting and matching within your organization. We incorporate current corporate venturing workflows in the new process.


In the run-phase RevelX performs three key activities:

  1. Optimize: RevelX optimizes the workflow during a specific period after completion
  2. Monitor: RevelX monitors (at a distance) and resolve issues and improve when necessary
  3. Outsource: RevelX can take over the corporate venturing workflow process, Corporate Venturing as a Service, based on (pre)defined KPIs and SLAs.

The RevelX Alliance Performance Module

It takes two to tango. Good Alliance management starts with alignment of individual (strategic) goals of the partners and congruence of business ethics, integrity, and mutual respect. The right fit.

Other essential ingredients are good communication, proper resources, the right systems and way of working. Partnership also needs corporate’s ownership at the right level and place, and alignment with the organization.

RevelX starts this module with our PULSE, our assessment that measures the heartbeat of your existing partnerships.

After the assessment, we will further develop this module together with the customer according to the maturity leven and needs of the organization.
