INDUSTRY 5.0

Industrial internet of things and artificial intelligence that can optimize industrial processes and deliver entirely new business models.

Manufacturing has long been a pillar of economic prosperity. Emerging technologies, such as advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI), are transforming the world of production and creating new opportunities for industry, society and the environment.

 

They provide industrial business operators with tools and skills for development of new operating systems and business models, transform the way people work, and use technology to be more efficient and sustainable. In parallel, consumers are changing rapidly with force, demanding personalized products and services, placing added pressure on manufacturers to innovate to remain competitive and achieve sustainable growth, while dealing with increased resource constraints as well as challenges like climate change and pandemics.

 

Through our programs, we invest with our partners in startups that have innovative and scalable solutions for the future of industrial operations like manufacturing and energy.
