COBIOM is a bio-inspired Swarm innovation consultancy that helps solving the challenges of the sustainability decade.
We provide easy access to the collective intelligence and collaborative innovation capabilities of a network of sustainability experts coming from supply chain management, circular economy, bio-inspired innovation, systems thinking, packaging and materials, carbon footprint assessment and many more.
This swarm of experts develops the bio-inspired solutions to reduce emissions, to increase resource efficiencies and to work towards zero waste.
We call it Swarm Innovation.
The need for A SUSTAINABLE transformation
Complex challenges ahead
The challenges of the upcoming sustainability decade will be complex and systemic. Businesses will experience an unprecedented evolutionary pressure to adapt to new political regulations, growing customer demand and steeply increasing compliance cost. We will experience new types of organisations, policies and technologies aimed towards a healthier planetary future. They are pioneering the business transformation that is so critical to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Businesses that fail to make their practices and products sustainable will not be able to thrive in the coming sustainability decade.
Sustainability milestones of the 2020s
Collaboration over competition
No one can solves these challenges alone.
Collaboration will be one of the crucial success criteria for the business success of companies. We’ve been inspired by how nature makes better decisions in Swarms than individuals could ever make alone.
COBIOM is a radically new collaboration platform that uses the power of Swarm Innovation.
The result of that collaborative work: intelligent solutions to problems emerging from the diverse expert backgrounds, self-organization and communication of the swarm members
Unleashing collective intelligence and innovation capabilities
The Power of the Swarm
Our Swarm is not just a random group of experts. The members are carefully selected pioneering leaders in their fields with a diversity of paramount abilities and an enormous track record of professional experience.
They are trailblazers, thought leaders in their field of expertise but also practitioners.
The true strength of the Swarm lies in the ability of our members to rapidly focus their competencies on a given project and collaborate across many different industries and sectors. As interdisciplinarity and creativity are becoming essential skill-sets, this is the key advantage of the Swarm Organization.
